THE OATH OF HIPPOCRATES 

I do solemnly swear by that which I hold most sacred that I will be loyal to the pro- 
fession of medicine and just and generous to its members. That I will lead my life and 
practice my art in uprightness and honor. That into whatsoever house I shall enter it 
shall be for the good of the sick to the utmost of my power. I hold myself aloof from 
wrong, from corruption, from the tempting of others to vice. That I will exercise my 
art solely for the cure of my patients, and will give no drug, perform no operation for 
a criminal purpose even if solicited, far less suggest it. That whatsoever I shall see or 
hear of the lives of men which is not fitting to be spoken, I will keep inviolably secret. 
These things I do promise and in proportion as I am faithful to this my oath, may hap- 
piness and good repute be ever mine; the opposite if I shall be forsworn. 

The University of Maryland is accredited by the Middle States Association of Col- 
leges and Secondary Schools and is a member of the Association of American Uni- 
versities. The School of Medicine is accredited by the Liaison Committee on 
Medical Education, the accrediting body for the Association of American Medical 
Colleges and the American Medical Association.

Profile 



Established in 1807, the University of Maryland School of Medicine is the fifth 
oldest medical school in the United States and the first to institute a residency 
training program. An integral part of the 1 1 -campus University of Maryland Sys- 
tem, the School of Medicine was the founding school of the University of Mary- 
land. Today the School of Medicine serves as foundation of a large academic 
health center that combines medical education, biomedical research, patient 
care and service to the community. While its traditional excellence remains con- 
stant, the School of Medicine and its national reputation continue to grow. 

The School of Medicine boasts the oldest building in the Western 
hemisphere in continuous use for medical education, the meticulously restored 
Davidge Hall, which was built in 1812. Two major classroom and laboratory 
buildings, the 14-floor Bressler Research Building and the nine-floor Medical 
School Teaching Facility, were completed within the past 1 5 years. The mid-rise, 
three-floor Biomedical Research Facility will be completed in late 1992 provid- 
ing an additional 32,500 net square feet of space. On the drawing board is the 
Health Sciences Facility, a new research and teaching facility slated for comple- 
tion in 1995. 

The University of Maryland at Baltimore Campus continues to expand 
as well. The new Veterans Administration Medical Hospital will open in the fall 
of 1992. A new patient tower for the University of Maryland Medical System will 
be completed in 1994 and a new facility to house the Health Sciences Library is 
in the planning stage. 

MILESTONES 

The foundations of the School of Medicine date back to 1789, when Baltimore 
physicians organized the Medical Society of Baltimore in an effort to train young 
physicians to succeed them. Following the Revolutionary War their numbers had 
been greatly diminished and they wanted to prevent charlatans from practicing 
in the area. Members of the Medical Society began to train prospective physi- 
cians in their homes, lecturing on anatomy, surgery and chemistry. They soon 
petitioned the Maryland State Legislature to establish a college oi medicine on 
a firm basis and under the protection of the law. 

This request was approved on January 20, 1807, together with permis- 
sion to hold a lottery to raise money for a home for the fledgling "College of Med- 
icine in Maryland." 

Dr. John Beale Davidge, a native Marylander and physician who had 
trained in Scotland, became dean and took the chair in surgery, f lis founding fac 
ult\ were James ( xx ke (anatomy and physiology), James Shaw (chemistry) and 
Nathaniel Totter (theory and practice of medicine). From John Eager \ loward, a 
Revolutionary War hero and former Maryland governor, Davidge, Shaw and 
c bcke bought land that was "quite some distance from town" to prote< t against 

PROFILI • I 



unruly mobs who had demolished the doctors' first anatomical theater in violent 
opposition to the dissection of human cadavers. From the beginning, there was 
a strong emphasis on bedside teaching. The first class of seven received clinical 
instruction at the Baltimore Almshouse, a workhouse and infirmary for the poor. 



Davidge Hall was designed by Robert Carey Long, Sr. and modeled after 
the Pantheon in Rome. It was completed in 1812 and meticulously renovated in 
the early 1980s. In addition to the building's two expansive circular amphithe- 
aters, one atop the other, there are dissecting cubbyholes, secret stairways and 
hidden exits that afforded early students and their professors safe passage from 
angry mobs. 

In 1823, the Baltimore Infirmary, forerunner of the University of Mary- 
land Hospital, was built opposite Davidge Hall on the site of the present Balti- 
more Student Union. It was the first hospital founded by a medical school for the 
express purpose of clinical instruction, and the site of the first intramural resi- 
dency program in the United States. Senior medical students lived in the hospi- 
tal while helping to care for patients. The building was still in active use until 
1973, when the clinics located there were moved into the new addition o( the 
University of Maryland Hospital. 

In curriculum development, the School of Medicine claims a long and 
proud tradition as an innovative leader. Maryland was the first to recognize the value 
of the basic sciences, and in 1833 intrcxiuced the first preventive medicine course. 
In 1800, Dr. John Crawford, whose personal library became the nucleus of the med- 
ical library, was the first to vaccinate Baltimoreans against smallpox. As early as 
1 810 he had presented evidence of the contagious character of tuberculosis. 

The techniques of auscultation and percussion were taught at the 
School of Medicine for the first time in Baltimore as early as 1841, and in 1844 
Dr. David Stewart, the first professor of pharmacy in the United States, initiated 
his lectures at Maryland. In 1848 Maryland became the first school to require 

2 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



anatomical dissection, followed six years later by the introduction of compulsory 
courses in gross and microscopic pathology. After another six years, compulsory 
courses in experimental physiology and microscopy were introduced. A mile- 
stone in cancer research occurred in 1853, when Maryland's Dr. Francis Don- 
aldson became the first person in America to advocate biopsy and microscopic 
diagnosis of malignancy. Maryland was the first to establish chairs in the diseases 
of women and children (1867) and diseases of the eye and ear (1873). 

Mergers with the Baltimore Medical College in 1913 and the College 
oi Physicians and Surgeons in 1915 gained greatly expanded clinical facilities 
and faculty for the School of Medicine. Early in the twentieth century, Drs. James 
Rowland and Louis Douglas initiated off-site obstetrical care and home delivery, 
prenatal clinics and an Rh blood typing laboratory, significantly improving 
infant and maternal health. 




The School of Medicine has had its share o( medical breakthroughs, 
including in more recent decades discovery of the thyrotropic hormone, the first 
successful antibiotic treatment of Rocky Mountain spotted fever, the firs! spe- 
cific cure for typhoid fever and the successful treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis 
with low dose insulin. The Shock Trauma C "enter, which opened in 1 % 1 , serves 
as a worldwide model for emergency medical treatment. In L967 theschool began 
one ot the first formalized residency programs in family practice. 

The rest, of course, is not yet history, but certainly history in the making. 



EDUCATION 

In the tradition.il undergraduate curriculum, medical students concentrate on 
bask s C iences tor two wars, then begin to apply this knowledge to ^ linical set- 
tings. Ample allowance is made tor electives, independent stud^ and special 



I 1 KOI u i . ) 



research projects. Throughout the four years, each student has a basic science and 
a clinical faculty advisor. 

The ties between the medical school and the hospital enrich both med- 
ical education and health care. All physicians practicing at the University of 
Maryland Medical System and the Medical Faculty Foundation Professional 
Building have School of Medicine faculty appointments and are actively 
involved in the educational process in addition to supervising residency training 
for more than 600 postgraduate positions at the University Hospital and affili- 
ated hospitals. The Medical System includes a 747-bed teaching hospital, Can- 
cer Center and R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center on campus, as well as 
the Montebello Rehabilitation Center and the James Lawrence Kernan Hospi- 
tal off campus. 




Medical care and education are further enhanced by the relocation of 
the Baltimore Veterans Administration Medical Center to this campus in a new 
state-of-the-art hospital opening this year adjacent to the School of Medicine 
and the University of Maryland Medical System. Together, these facilities serve 
as the major clinical training sites as well as a source of comprehensive health 
care for the local community and the state. The school also has established clin- 
ical affiliations throughout the region, giving students unusual flexibility in clin- 
ical experiences. 

In an effort to nurture more interest in basic research and to meet the 
increasing demand for physician-scientists, the school offers a combined MD/PhD 
program in 10 medical disciplines and an MD/MS program in preventive medi- 
cine. Although the schedule can be flexible, MD/PhD students typically complete 
the freshman and sophomore years of medical school, enroll as graduate students 
for approximately two years, and then begin their clinical clerkships. 



4 • SCHOOL OF MEDICI NH 



Medical students in the track leading to the MD/MS in preventive med- 
icine may complete the dual degree program in four, or more typically, five years. 
The fifth year is counted fully as one year of preventive medicine residency train- 
ing by the American Board of Preventive Medicine. 

Graduate programs are offered at the master's and doctoral levels in the 
basic sciences. There is a baccalaureate program in medical and research tech- 
nology and a master's program in physical therapy as well as a number of inter- 
disciplinary programs with both service and research components. Continuing 
education programs are sponsored for practicing physicians. 

The School of Medicine offers students an excellent spectrum of 
resources and field experiences. Located along the Baltimore-Washington corri- 
dor, the school is in the midst of a great concentration of health care institutions, 
research centers, government agencies and professional associations. The Uni- 
versity of Maryland Medical System is the school's primary training site for both 
medical students and residents. In addition, students and residents are also 
trained through the network of Baltimore metropolitan hospitals and the Balti- 
more Veterans Administration Medical Center which are affiliated with the 
School of Medicine. 




RESEARCH 

Ranked among the top public medical schools in Nil 1 research support, the level 
oi research funding tor the School ot Medicine has risen dramatically in recent 
years in contrast to a leveling national trend in gram support. In FY 90 the School 
of Medicine ranked ^1 in percentage increase in Nil! funding among all state 
supported medical .schools and ~1 among all schools. In 1990-91 the School ot 
Medicine's grant and contract support totaled $77,493,739. Strong multi-depart 
mental investigations in hypertension, genetics, pharmacology, neurobiology

and immunology place this institution at the forefront of biomedical research. 
Major awards illustrate the strength and scope of the research environment at 
this institution. 

1H AIDS Risk Prevention in Inner City Youths — Department of Pediatrics. 
This five-year project proposes to alter the high-risk behaviors of inner- 
city youths as a key contribution in stopping the spread of AIDS. The spe- 
cific HIV risk activities to be prevented are obviously "unsafe" sexual 
conduct and drug abuse. However, the array of issues that actually affect 
adolescent behavior are a complex matrix of psychological, cognitive and 
cultural variables that are rooted at the community level. By integrating 
these factors into the formulation of innovative intervention models, this 
program would like to redirect the interactive behavior of 100 groups of 
adolescents in a positive manner. The actual outcome of the project will 
be several goal-oriented and community-based activities. The impact of 
the final approach will be evaluated in the individuals involved but should 
also be felt community-wide. 

H Under the NIH Vaccine Testing and Evaluation Unit five-year, $7.3 mil- 
lion contract, the Center for Vaccine Development (Department of 
Medicine) conducts studies of the safety, immunogenicity and efficacy 
of candidate vaccines, and of the mechanisms of pathogenesis in human 
volunteers. Candidate vaccines against typhoid fever, traveler's diarrhea, 
cholera, malaria and other infectious diseases are being tested in this facil- 
ity, which includes a 32-bed Research Isolation Ward in University Hos- 
pital. This is the fourth consecutive NIH vaccine evaluation contract 
awarded to the university, which pioneered the use of community volun- 
teers in vaccine studies in the mid-1970s. 

H Supported by a $2.4 million grant from the National Eye Institute, the 
School of Medicine will soon begin participating in the national Related 
Eye Disease Study, whose mission is the early identification of signs of age- 
related degeneration of the retina's center or macula. 

Hi Balancing appropriate health care and cost is the focus o{ a major grant to 
the School of Medicine's Department of Epidemiology and Preventive 
Medicine. A five-year, $5 million grant from the U.S. Department of 
Health and Human Services will enable two epidemiologists to collabo- 
rate with the Division of Orthopaedic Surgery to compare the effective- 
ness of hip fracture repair and total hip replacement in the elderly. They 
will then develop guidelines to assure patients optimal recovery while 
avoiding unnecessary and costly procedures. 

■I The Baltimore Program for Homeless Persons with Severe Mental Illness 
is an NIMH-sponsored research demonstration project examining inno- 

6 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



vative approaches to providing comprehensive community-based services 
to persons who are homeless and mentally ill. This interdisciplinary treat- 
ment team delivers mobile mental health, medical and social services to 
homeless persons in various community settings and emphasizes continu- 
ity of care. The program offers an excellent training site for students inter- 
ested in delivery of care in the community to disadvantaged populations. 
The program is under the direction of the Department of Psychiatry's Cen- 
ter for Mental Health Services Research. 

A Geriatrics Research, Education and Clinical Center (GRECC) has been 
established at the Baltimore Veterans Administration Medical Center. As 
one of 16 national centers of excellence for the advancement of research 
and clinical care in the elderly, the Baltimore center focuses on the pre- 
vention of cardiovascular disease and rehabilitation from stroke in older 
veterans. Interdisciplinary research programs examine the prevalence of 
risk factors for cardiovascular disease in older veterans and implement 
interventions of exercise training, nutrition counseling, smoking cessation 
and neurorehabilitation to determine the effectiveness of and the mecha- 
nisms by which these programs reduce risk for cardiovascular disease and 
improve the functional capacity and quality of life of older veterans. The 
goal o( the GRECC is to attract outstanding professionals to conduct 
research, teach and deliver clinical care in interdisciplinary programs 
designed to promote health in older veterans. 




PUBLIC SERVICE 

In addition to training the majority oi Maryland's prac ticing physicians, the fac- 
ulty of the School oi Medicine play an important role in providing leadership in 
health planning and policy making. For example, the Maryland Plan, .i joini 



profili • 



School of Medicine-state Department of Health and Mental Hygiene venture, 
has revolutionized mental health care in the state and become a national model. 
Through an innovative residency program, the project has attracted board-cer- 
tified psychiatrists to administrative and clinical positions in state mental hospi- 
tals and, in the process, significantly improved the quality of patient care. 

Family medicine specialists augment house calls with coordination of 
the Supportive Care Program. Funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, 
the interdisciplinary health and home care program enables frail elderly and dis- 
abled Baltimoreans to remain in their own homes and avoid unnecessary place- 
ment in nursing homes. 

Under a contract with the public school system, the Department of 
Pediatrics screens area children for developmental disabilities while genetics spe- 
cialists counsel prospective parents in several remote areas of the state. 

The Department o{ Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine designs 
computer models to forecast welfare caseload and use and, under a contract with 
the state Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, operates the Maryland 
Cancer Registry. 




THE CAMPUS AND BEYOND 

The School of Medicine is an integral part of one of the country's first centers for 
professional education and research. Located in downtown Baltimore, the 32- 
acre University of Maryland at Baltimore campus includes the Schools of Den- 
tistry, Law, Nursing, Pharmacy, Social Work, the Graduate School and the 
University o{ Maryland Medical System and the Maryland Institute for Emer- 
gency Medical Services Systems. The University of Maryland at Baltimore shares 
the campus with the Baltimore Veterans Administration Medical Center and 
the Hope Lodge and Baltimore Ronald McDonald House, both offering low cost

housing and a home-like atmosphere for pediatric and adult outpatients and their 
families. 

Opportunities abound for faculty and students to join with other health 
and human service professionals in interdisciplinary' study, informal discourse 
and collaborative clinical practice and research. The Baltimore campus is located 
in the hub of one of the greatest concentrations of health care institutions, 
research facilities, government agencies and professional associations in the 
nation, offering students a wide selection of field experiences. 

In addition to professional opportunities, the city of Baltimore offers a 
stimulating environment in which to live and study. Baltimore residents enjoy 
the sophistication of a large metropolitan city combined with easy accessibility 
to surrounding mountains, beaches and rural areas. The many attractions and 
resources of Washington, D.C. are less than a one-hour drive from Baltimore. 

Having been the location o{ significant events in the history ot our 
country and a renowned foreign-commerce seaport, Baltimore maintains a 
strung feeling oi the past, typified by the many charming neighborhoods of 
restored houses and an abundance ot historic monuments and buildings. In the 
hist decade the downtown area has undergone dramatic revitalization. Within 
easy walking distance of the campus is the nationally acclaimed Inner Harbor 
area where Harborplace, the National Aquarium and the Maryland Science 
( 'enter share the festival atmosphere of the harbor with hotels, shops and restau- 
rants, water taxis, pleasure and tour boats and a wide variety of frequently visit- 
ing international ships. Restored townhouses and newly constructed townhouses 
and condominium complexes share the view and atmosphere and excitement ot 
downtown living. 

As ,1 cultural center, Baltimore has offerings to please the most dis- 
criminating, including a world-class symphony orchestra, mam fine museums, 
theaters, libraries, oper.i and ballet.

For sports fans, Baltimore boasts Oriole baseball, professional indoor 
soccer and ice hockey, collegiate and club lacrosse, horseracing and steeplechase. 
Opening with the 1992 season is the new home of the Baltimore Orioles, Oriole 
Park at Camden Yards. The new stadium is but a two-block stroll from the Uni- 
versity of Maryland at Baltimore campus. The nearby Chesapeake Bay offers 
unparalleled opportunities for boating enthusiasts and water sportsmen. Gas- 
tronomy aficionados will delight in experiencing the seafood for which the 
region is famous. 




Admissions Information 



APPLICATION 

The University of Maryland School of Medicine is a participant in the Ameri- 
can Medical College Application Service (AMCAS). All requests for a place in 
the first-year class must be initiated by an AMCAS application. AMCAS appli- 
cation request cards can be obtained from AMCAS, 2450 N Street, N.W., Wash- 
ington, D.C. 20037-1131, or from the Committee on Admissions, School of 
Medicine, University of Maryland at Baltimore, 655 West Baltimore Street, Bal- 
timore, Maryland 21201. In addition, they are usually available from the pre- 
medical advisory office at the undergraduate college. AMCAS application 
material is ready for distribution about mid-May o( the year in which an indi- 
vidual plans to submit an application to the School of Medicine. 

For the School of Medicine, the AMCAS application is the first of a 
two stage application process and is due in Washington by November 1. The 
Committee on Admissions thoroughly reviews the AMCAS application and, 

10 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



based on the information contained in it, determines whether the second stage 
(School of Medicine) application form can be sent. An application fee ($40) 
payable to the University of Maryland School of Medicine is sent only with sub- 
mission of the second stage application form which is due by December 1. All 
applicants who are determined to be residents of the state of Maryland are invited 
to submit a second-stage application. Nonresidents will either be sent second- 
stage application material or will be informed that the Committee on Admis- 
sions cannot continue the application process. 

The application form and supporting credentials should be filed as early 
as possible in the application period. Please do not have supporting credentials 
sent prior to submission of the second-stage application. 

The applicant must assume responsibility for assuring that all required 
credentials and the completed application packet are filed with and received by 
the Committee on Admissions. The applicant is expected to respond truthfully 
and completely to all questions on the AMCAS and School of Medicine appli- 
cation forms. An applicant who provides false or misleading information may be 
denied admission or, if enrolled before discovery of irregularity in the application 
process, may be dismissed from the school. 

EARLY DECISION PROGRAM 

The University of Maryland School of Medicine has an Early Decision Program 
for applicants who are sure that their first choice of medical schools is the Uni- 
versity oi Maryland. The Committee on Admissions interviews selected early 
decision applicants and makes a decision on these students before considering 
the regular pool of applicants. By applying for early decision, the highly qualified 
applicant avoids having to make numerous other applications. Applicants with 
less competitive academic credentials or those without the support oi their pre- 
medical advisor, are discouraged from applying through this program. 

The early decision applicant must apply only to this school by the 
AMCAS deadline of August 1 . Applicants must provide all supplementary infor- 
mation by September 1 . Interviews will take place at the medical school between 
mid-August and late September. No one will be accepted without an interview. 
If offered a place by this school, the applicant cannot apply elsewhere. All deci- 
sions for this program are made by October 1 . 

The Committee on Admissions can make one of three decisions tor 
each early decision applicant: 1) acceptance; 2) rejection; or }) placement into 
the regular applicant pool for review at a later time. Each applicant will be noti- 
fied promptly oi the Committee on Admissions' decision sD that those not 
ac< epted through this program can apply elsewhere. 

Individuals who apply through the Early Decision Program cannot 
apply to any other medical school until they are not itied thai they have not been 
accepted through this program .it the University ol Maryland. 



\ DM I SSI ON S INFORMATION 



APPLICANT SELECTION CRITERIA 

Academic achievement, extracurricular activities, personal characteristics, rec- 
ommendations from the premedical committee or college instructors, scores on 
the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) and personal interview all are 
considered in the committee's evaluation of an applicant. Academic achieve- 
ment and/or high MCAT scores do not in themselves ensure acceptance. Of sig- 
nificant concern to the Committee on Admissions are the applicant's character, 
personality and potential to perform as a medical student and as a future physi- 
cian. Personal integrity, emotional maturity and stability, motivation, interests 
and activities outside the classroom and interpersonal and communication skills 
are all carefully evaluated. Candidates must be proficient in both written and 
spoken English. 

Applications from persons with outstanding credentials from other 
areas of the United States and Canada are welcome and will receive all possible 
consideration. Preference in the selection process is given to residents of the state 
of Maryland. Applications can be processed only from citizens of the United 
States and Canada or from individuals who reside in this country on a permanent 
resident visa. Occasionally an applicant residing in the United States holds a visa 
permitting him/her to live in the United States indefinitely and to establish res- 
idency in one of the states. Applications are accepted from these individuals. 
Those on a time-limited visa, such as a student visa, are not eligible for admis- 
sion to the School of Medicine. 




ADMISSION TO THE FIRST-YEAR CLASS 

The student should plan a four-year curriculum with a suitable arts or science major 
leading to a bachelor's degree. The Committee on Admissions encourages appli- 
cants to pursue a course of study that is rigorous, scholarly and focused on areas that 

12 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



are intellectually challenging and interesting to the applicant. The Committee on 
Admissions seeks to admit students with diverse academic backgrounds. 

A minimum of 90 semester hours of acceptable college credit is 
required, exclusive of physical education and military science. These must be 
earned in colleges or universities whose names appear on the current list of 
Accredited Institutions of Higher Education as compiled by the National Com- 
mittee of Regional Accrediting Agencies of the United States. The only courses 
accepted are those that are approved for credit towards a degree by the univer- 
sity or college attended. Preparation at a foreign college or university must be sup- 
plemented by a year or more of work in an approved university or college in the 
United States. 

Successful completion of the following courses and credits is required 
prior to matriculation at the School of Medicine. 

Semester Hours 

Biological sciences 8 

General chemistry 8 

Organic chemistry 6 

General physics 8 

English 6 

No more than 60 hours can be accepted from accredited junior colleges 
and then, only if these credits are validated by a college offering a Bachelor of 
Arts or Science degree. Advanced placement credits for science courses taken in 
high school may be accepted if the applicant's college (which grants the bache- 
lor's degree) has given college credit for those courses. Other exceptions may be 
granted at the discretion of the Committee on Admissions. 

Selected students who enter the School of Medicine from colleges that 
usually grant a baccalaureate degree after the successful completion of the first 
year of medical school are responsible for: ( 1 providing a certificate from the col- 
lege or university certifying eligibility for this degree; and (2 ) meeting all require- 
ments of the School of Medicine for advancement to the second year. 

The MCAT must be taken no later than fall of the year preceding the 
desired year of entrance and must be taken within three years of the anticipated 
date of matriculation. Applicants should write to the American College Testing

istration forms, or to the Committee on Admissions. 

A letter of recommendation from the undergraduate premedical com- 
mittee or an officially designated premedical advisor is required. It the applicant's 
undergraduate college or university docs not have a premedical committee or 
advisor, three letters of recommendation are required from faculty who have 
taught the applicant. Two ot these letters must come from instructors who have 
taught the applicant in the sciences. Applicants who have earned advanced 
degrees or who have been out ot school tor a significant length ot time should

submit a letter of recommendation from each component of their education or 
major work-related experience. Letters of recommendation should be submitted 
by individuals qualified to evaluate the applicant's accomplishments, productiv- 
ity and character in an objective and critical manner. All letters of recommen- 
dation should be sent directly to the Committee on Admissions. They are not to 
be sent to AMCAS. 

Each applicant's credentials are evaluated by the Committee on Admis- 
sions to determine if an interview is to be granted. All interviews are conducted 
at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. These interviews are sched- 
uled in advance by invitation. 

In its selection process, the Committee on Admissions must use the 
applicant's residency status that is in effect on the last day applications can be 
received (December 1). The Office of Records and Registration (a campuswide 
office), University of Maryland at Baltimore, 621 West Lombard Street, Balti- 
more, Maryland 21201; 410-706-7480, is responsible for all decisions regarding res- 
idency. All questions, complaints and appeals regarding residency status should be 
directed to that office, not to the Office of Admissions for the School of Medicine. 
Nonresidents who matriculate at the School of Medicine should plan to main- 
tain that status throughout the four years o( medical school. Current standards 
for reclassification to in-state status are rigorous and may make reclassification 
difficult. 

For further information regarding the admissions process in general, the 
applicant is referred to a booklet entitled "Medical School Admissions Require- 
ments," which can be obtained from:

DETERMINATION OF IN-STATE STATUS 

An initial determination of in-state status for admission, tuition and charge-dif- 
ferential purposes will be made by the university at the time a student's applica- 
tion for admission is under consideration. The determination made at that time, 
and any determination thereafter, shall prevail in each semester until the deter- 
mination is successfully challenged prior to the last day available for registration 
for the forthcoming semester. A determination regarding in-state status may be 
changed for any subsequent semester if circumstances warrant redetermination. 

In those instances where an entering class size is established and where 
an application deadline is stated, in-state conditions for admissions must be sat- 
isfied as of the announced closing application date. 

Applications for review of eligibility and questions concerning the univer- 
sity policy should be directed to the Office of Records and Registration, University 
of Maryland at Baltimore, 621 West Lombard Street, Baltimore, Maryland 21201. 

Students classified as in-state for admission, tuition and charge-differ- 
ential purposes are responsible for notifying the Office of Records and Registra- 
tion, in writing, within 15 days of any change of circumstances which might 
affect their classification at the Baltimore campus. 

A complete policy statement may be obtained from the School of Medi- 
cine's Committee on Admissions or the UMAB Office of Records and Registration.

gram and supporting services. 

The instructional resources fee is charged to provide funds for supplies, 
materials, equipment and other costs directly associated with the instructional 
program. 

Student activities fees are used to meet the costs of various student activi- 
ties, student publications and cultural programs. The Student Government Asso- 
ciation, in cooperation with the Dean's Office, recommends expenditure of the fees 
collected. 

A student health fee is charged to help defray the cost of providing health 
services, which include routine examinations and emergency care. Acceptable 
medical insurance is required in addition to the student health fee. 

The supporting facilities fee is used in support of the expansion of various 
facilities on campus that are not funded or are partially funded through other 
sources.

and commencement. 

All checks and money orders should be made payable to the University 
of Maryland for the exact amount of the actual bill. 

A service charge is assessed for dishonored checks. It is payable tor each 
check returned unpaid by the drawee bank because of insufficient funds, stopped 
payment, postdating or if it has been drawn against uncollected items. 

H For checks up to $50 — $5 

■ For checks from $50.01 to $100— $10 

■ For checks over $ 1 00— $20 



FINANCIAL IMORMAIION • 1 



Late registration fees defray the cost of the special handling involved for 
those who do not complete their registration on the prescribed days. No diploma, 
certificate or transcript will be issued to a student until all financial obligations 
to the university have been satisfied. 

The university reserves the right to make such changes in fees and other 
charges as may be necessary. 




REGISTRATION 

To attend classes at the University of Maryland at Baltimore campus it is neces- 
sary to process an official registration. All students are required to register each 
term in accordance with current registration procedures. The balance of tuition 
and fees is due and payable on the dates specified for registration. Registration is 
not completed until all financial obligations are satisfied. Students who do not 
complete their registration, including the payment o( their bill on the registra- 
tion days, will be subject to a late registration fee. 

Courses taken concurrently with a University of Maryland at Baltimore 
registration at another campus or institution must have program approval in 
advance by the appropriate University of Maryland at Baltimore officials. Off- 
campus registration forms are available in each dean's office and in the Office of 
Records and Registration. 

Although the university regularly mails bills to advance-registered stu- 
dents, it cannot assume responsibility of their receipt. If any student does not 
receive a bill prior to the beginning of a semester in which he or she has advance- 
registered, it is that student's responsibility to contact Student Accounting, 
Administration Building, during normal business hours. 

Students who arena-register or advance-register and subsequently 
decide not to attend UMAB must notify the Office of Records and Registration, 
Room 326, Baltimore Student Union, in writing, prior to the first day of instruc- 



18 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINH 



tion. If this office has not received a request for cancellation by 5:00 p.m. of the 
last day before instruction begins, the university will assume the student plans to 
attend and accepts the financial obligation. 

After classes begin, students who wish to terminate their registration 
must submit an application for withdrawal to the Office of Records and Registra- 
tion. Students are liable for all charges applicable at the time of the withdrawal. 

If a satisfactory settlement or agreement for settlement is not made with 
the Business Office within 10 days after a payment is due, the student is auto- 
matically barred from attendance at classes and will forfeit the other privileges o( 
the School of Medicine. 

WITHDRAWAL 

Students who wish to leave the School of Medicine at any time during the aca- 
demic year are required to file a letter of resignation with the dean. In addition, 
an Application for Withdrawal form bearing the proper signatures must be filed 
with the Office of Records and Registration. The student must satisfy the author- 
ities that he or she has no outstanding obligations to the school and must return 
his or her student identification card. 

If the above procedures are not completed, the student will not be enti- 
tled to honorable dismissal and will forfeit the right to any refunds to which that 
student would otherwise be entitled. The date used in computing refunds is the 
date the application for withdrawal is signed by the dean. 

ACADEMIC STANDING 

Students who voluntarily withdraw during an academic semester will be given 
no credit. Students are not permitted to resort to withdrawal in order to preclude 
current or impending failures. Their standing on withdrawal will be recorded at 
the Office oi Records and Registration. Students who withdraw from the med- 
ical school and later desire readmission must apply to the Committee on Admis- 
sions unless other arrangements have been made with the dean's written consent. 

REFUNDS 

Students officially withdrawing from the school will be credited for all academic 
fees charged to them less the matriculation fee, in accordance with the following 
schedule from the date instruction begins: 

IH Two weeks or less 80 percent 

H Two to three weeks 60 percent 

H Three to four week s 40 percent 



I I \ A N i I A 1 INFORMATION • 



Hi Four to five weeks 20 percent

LEAVES OF ABSENCE 

Students who are in good standing may be granted one year's leave of absence on 
request of the dean. Longer leaves can be arranged only under special circum- 
stances with the exception of those students in the combined MD/PhD program. 

REQUIRED EQUIPMENT 

Dissecting Instruments: At the beginning of the first year, all freshmen must pos- 
sess a complete set of dissecting instruments similar to those on display at the 
campus bookstore. 

Microscopes: All freshmen also must provide themselves with a standard micro- 
scope. All microscopes must conform to the following specifications: 

Hi Binocular 

HI 10X oculars (wide field oculars are recommended, but not required) 

Hi Quadruple nose piece

H Mechanical stage to accommodate standard size microscopic slides (the 
stage need not be graduated) 

H Light source (built-in on base is preferable) 

Hi Substage condenser 

■ A carrying case (recommended) 

Students are cautioned about purchasing used or odd-lot microscopes 
since some of the older instruments are in poor optical or mechanical condi- 
tion. Second-hand microscopes should be approved by the department prior to 
purchase. 

20 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



Based on the determination oi financial need, first-year medical stu- 
dents may qualify for loan of a microscope. 

Other Equipment: By the second year, medical students are required 
to have an ophthalmoscope, otoscope, a blood pressure cuff and stethoscope. 
The estimated cost of these items, plus other essentials such as lab coats, is 
$400 to $450. 

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE 

The School of Medicine's financial aid program is available to medical students 
who demonstrate financial need. Through a varying combination of grants, 
scholarships, loans and part-time employment, students may receive assistance 
in meeting educational expenses. In addition to school resources, outside fund- 
ing agencies make financial assistance available to qualified medical students. 

An application for financial aid must be submitted annually to be con- 
sidered for assistance during the following academic year. Priority filing date is 
February 1 5. Entering students may request financial aid applications from either 
the Committee on Admissions or the Student Financial Aid Office. Students 
currently enrolled in the School of Medicine may obtain forms from: 
Student Financial Aid Office 
University of Maryland at Baltimore 
621 West Lombard Street 
Baltimore, Maryland 21201 

Student assistance is awarded on the basis o( demonstrated financial 
need. Eligibility for financial aid is dependent upon the student maintaining 
good academic standing and full-time attendance. When determining the 
amount to be awarded, the financial aid committee considers the following: ( 1 ) 
income, assets and resources of the student and student's family; (2) support 
available to the student from nonuniversity sources and (3) the costs reasonably 
necessary for full-time attendance at the school. 

Renewal of financial aid for succeeding years depends on annual sub- 
mission and review o( a financial aid application, good academic standing, the 
student's continued financial need, and the availability of funds. A complete 
description of the procedures used to evaluate applications tor aid, the student 
budgets used and various university, state and federal programs, can be found in 
the brochure "Financial Aid at UMAB." 

Medical School Funds 

University Grants. Made to Maryland residents. 

Dean's Scholarship. Funds provided the school are awarded primarily to nonresi- 
dent students. 



FINANCIAI INFORMATION • 



Desegregation Grants. Minority students who are Maryland residents are eligible 
for these funds. Desegregation grants are normally used to reduce the amount of 
loan included in the financial aid award. 

Medical Alumni Association. Interest-free loans are available to students on the 
basis of financial need. 

Work-Study . The College Work-Study Program provides jobs for students who 
need financial aid and who choose to earn part of their educational expenses. Jobs 
are arranged either on- or off-campus with a public or private nonprofit agency. 
Eligible students may be employed for as many as 20 hours per week. To be eligi- 
ble for College-Work Study a student must apply for financial aid and demon- 
strate financial need. 

Private and Endowment Funds. From bequests and private donations, the School 
of Medicine has established private and endowment accounts to provide fellow- 
ships, scholarships and loans for students on the basis of their academic achieve- 
ment and financial need. The amounts of these fellowships, scholarships and 
loans vary and are awarded on an annual basis in accordance with school policy. 
The availability of support from each of the funds listed below is dependent upon 
the income generated. Moreover, since many of the funds are governed by spe- 
cific provisions set forth by the donors, awards must be made accordingly.

Colleges and Secondary Schools and is a member o( the Association of Ameri- 
can Universities. The School of Medicine is accredited by the Liaison Commit- 
tee on Medical Education, the accrediting body for the Association of American 
Medical Colleges and the American Medical Association. 

GENERAL RULES 

The university authorities reserve the right to make changes, whenever appro- 
priate, in the curriculum, the requirements for advancement and graduation, fees 
and rules and regulations. 

Matriculants are required to accept the provisions of the Judicial Board 
and agree to assume its obligations prior to registration. 

Students who report for classes later than one week after the scheduled 
time will be permitted to begin work only by permission of the dean. Attendance

Notice of change of address should be submitted promptly to the Dean's 
Office and to the Registrar's Office. 

All new students, whether they are admitted to the first-year class or

GRADES AND PROMOTION 

The final grades for all courses in all four years should be recorded as follows: 

A (Excellent) 

B (Very Good) 

C (Satisfactory) 

D (Unsatisfactory) 

F (Failing) 

Incomplete — This designation is used only when mitigating circumstances 
(e.g., illness, unavoidable absence) have prevented the student 
from completing the course on time. It is to be viewed as a non- 
prejudicial entry on the student's record; the grade "Inc" 
remains on the official student transcript. 

An award of "Honors" is given to a student who receives a final grade of 
"A" and performs an additional scholarly effort that is clearly outstanding. 



26 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



In addition to the final objective grade and the "Honors" category, the 
student's overall performance is evaluated subjectively. Appropriate evaluation 
forms are designated for this purpose. 

Established rules for advancement and dismissal during all four years 
have been approved by the faculty and student body representatives o( the 
School of Medicine Council. All regulations related to grading, advancement 
and dismissal are included in the Academic Handbook given to all entering stu- 
dents at orientation. 

The faculty reserves the right to determine whether a student may with- 
draw, repeat, advance or graduate on academic or moral and personal grounds, 
including traits of character. 

EQUAL OPPORTUNITY 

The University of Maryland is an equal opportunity institution with respect to 
both education and employment. The university's policies, programs and activ- 
ities are in conformance with pertinent federal and state laws and regulations on 
nondiscrimination regarding race, color, religion, age, national origin, sex and 
handicap. 

The school has the objective of securing a broad racial, sexual and eth- 
nic balance in its enrollment. To achieve this objective it gives every consider- 
ation to minority student applications. 

UNETHICAL CONDUCT 

In order to matriculate and/or graduate, students must be of good moral charac- 
ter, consistent with the licensure requirements of the state of Maryland for phy- 
sicians, and must demonstrate character traits consistent with competent

graduate any student whose actions or overall academic performance, including 
clinical performance, do not demonstrate good moral character and ability to 
function effectively as a physician. Such action may be taken notwithstanding a 
student's compliance with standards for advancement and graduation set out in 
the School of Medicine grading policy.

SALARY AND EMPLOYMENT INFORMATION 

A high percentage of graduates enter the practice of medicine after completion 
of residency training. There appears to be a moderate excess of physicians in some 
disciplines of medicine and in some geographic areas. However, the overall need 
for persons holding the MD degree is such that all graduates of the School of Med- 
icine may expect a satisfactory income.

CURRICULUM 

Broadly stated, the education objectives of the School of Medicine are: 

Hi To educate students intensively and broadly in medicine and in the sci- 
ence of medicine. To equip students to engage in a lifetime of learning in 
order that they may successfully adapt to the changing environment and 
achieve a high level of professional competence and social awareness. 

H To provide opportunities for students at every level of training to pursue areas 
of special interest for intellectual stimulation and/or career advancement. 

H To encourage the formation oi highly competent specialists, primary care 
physicians, or scholars in basic or clinical research or administration. 



SCHOOL OF M Km CINE 



In order to meet changing needs of graduate medical education and the 
practice of medicine, the curriculum may vary from year to year. A standing Cur- 
riculum Coordinating Committee, composed of department chairpersons, spe- 
cial course chairpersons, faculty members-at-large, and representatives oi the 
student body, has the responsibility oi regularly monitoring and reviewing the 
curriculum and recommending changes whenever they are deemed appropriate. 

First and Second Years. There are two four-month core sessions in each 
of the first two years. In January o{ the freshman year and June of both years 
(known as minimesters), students take a required minimum of eight elective 
freshman/sophomore credits before advancing to the third year. These electives 
may be taken during any one of the four minimesters at the student's and advi- 
sor's discretion and as approved by the Electives Committee. 

During the freshman year, the following core courses are taught: 
Anatomy (including gross anatomy, histology and embryology), Biochemistry, 
Behavioral and Social Science, Physiology and Biophysics (combined), Neuro- 
sciences (interdisciplinary), Genetics, and Biostatistics. In addition, during the 
freshman year interdisciplinary course, Introduction to Clinical Practice, stu- 
dents are exposed to interviewing techniques. Intimate Human Behavior, an 
interprofessional course under the aegis o( the Office o{ Medical Education, is 
required of freshman medical students. 

During the sophomore year, students enroll in the following core 
courses: Microbiology, Pathology, Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeu- 
tics, Physical Diagnosis, Psychopathology, and Epidemiology and Preventive 
Medicine. Introduction to Clinical Practice continues in the sophomore year 
and includes specialty physical diagnosis and medical ethics. There is continued 
emphasis on clinical correlation throughout the two years with combined 
instruction by basic and clinical science faculty. This correlative teaching pro- 
vides the medical student with the full spectrum of the basic science foundation 
and the clinical science presentation of disease states. Attendance in all small 
groups including laboratories and discussion groups, is mandatory in both the 
freshman and sophomore years. 

Time for independent study has been added to the first and second years. 

Third and Fourth Years. The clinical years curriculum was recently 
revised. The two clinical years are viewed as a single unit with the student assum- 
ing progressive responsibility for patient care. The junior clinical experience 
consists of two 12-week rotations, one in Internal Medicine and one in Surgery; 
three six-week rotations in Pediatrics, Psychiatry, and Obstetrics and Gynecol- 
ogy; and two four-week rotations in Radiology/Ophthalmology and Neurol- 
ogy/Rehabilitation Medicine. These two tour-week rotations alternate between 
junior and senior years, depending on a student's predetermined schedule. As 
noted, students take all of these rotations according to individual schedules. The 
sum of these experiences provides a 46-week introduction to clinical science. 

The J6-week block that follows includes a 1 6- week elective period dur- 
ing which the student may take eight weeks oi electives off-campus. An addi- 
tional eight weeks must be spent in a student internship in one ot tour clinical 

PROGRAMS OF STUDY • M 



fields: medicine, surgery, pediatrics or family practice. Here the student has an 
opportunity for primary patient care responsibility over a prolonged period of 
time. These rotations are offered at the University of Maryland Medical System 
and in approved affiliated hospitals. The third segment is a consecutive eight- 
week experience in an ambulatory setting. These outpatient settings include 
internal medicine, pediatrics and family practice, with additional experience in 
epidemiology and preventive medicine. Attendance in all course work in clini- 
cal areas is mandatory. The current clinical curriculum frequently involves week- 
end attendance. In any additional free time, the student may audit available 
electives. 

The 82-week combined clinical years program provides a strong 
grounding in clinical science with a progressive opportunity for primary patient 
care responsibility. The curriculum is designed to prepare the medical student for 
the increasing responsibility demanded by the specialty residency programs 
adopted throughout the country.

COMBINED MD/PHD PROGRAMS 

Research in human disease requires investigators with interests and training in 
both basic science and clinical medicine. The primary objective of the MD/PhD 
Program is to train medical scientists. These individuals will differ from most 
basic scientists by having the clinical background necessary for the management 
and investigation of human disease. Equally, the MD/PhD medical scientist will 
differ from most physicians by having extensive laboratory experience and the 
scientific background that can lead to the application of a basic scientific 
approach to studies of clinical problems. To achieve this goal, a flexible program 
of combined medical and scientific training is provided to highly motivated stu- 
dents of superior research and academic potential. This program utilizes fully the 
broad range of basic and clinical science opportunities that are available at the 
University oi Maryland at Baltimore. 

The MD/PhD Program is offered through the Departments of Anatomy, 
Biochemistry, Biophysics, Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine, Microbiol- 
ogy and Immunology, Pathology, Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics, 
Physiology, and the Division of Human Genetics as well as the Department of 
Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Maryland Baltimore County. 

The degree requirements for the combined MD/PhD will be equivalent 
to those of the separate degree requirements tor the Doctor ot Medicine in the 
School ot Medicine and the Doctor o\ Philosophy in the University ot Maryland 
( iraduate School, Baltimore. It is anticipated th.it the MD/PhD degree can be 
completed within six to seven years. 

Although the schedule o\ training can he flexible, entering students 
typically complete the two preclinical years as regular medical students and 
receive graduate credit tor many courses taken during this period. The students 
use minimesters and summers to gain research experience in the basic science 
departments ot their choice. Students are expected to "rotate" through the vari- 



PROGRAMS Ol STUDY • 



ous laboratories in the selected graduate department in order to facilitate the 
final choice of a thesis advisor. 

After the preclinical years, MD/PhD students enroll as full-time gradu- 
ate students for two-to-three years, taking required graduate courses and semi- 
nars, conducting research and focusing on dissertation research. Subsequently, 
they begin the clinical clerkships using elective periods during the clinical years 
to complete PhD research. This sequence is general; a student may complete the 
program in a different sequence, depending on the schedule developed in con- 
sultation with the student's advisor. 

Applicants to the MD/PhD Program are required to meet the admis- 
sions requirements of the School of Medicine and the University of Maryland 
Graduate School, Baltimore. Qualified candidates are interviewed and selected 
by the MD/PhD Program Advisory Committee. Applications will be considered 
from qualified juniors or seniors at any accredited university, as well as from med- 
ical students currently enrolled at the University of Maryland at Baltimore. In 
addition, applications will be considered from students currently enrolled in a 
graduate level program (i.e., MS, PhD) at the University of Maryland School of 
Medicine or other accredited universities. An application form is included in the 
medical school admissions packet. 

Some applicants from each entering class may be awarded a waiver of 
tuition (at the financial level of Maryland resident tuition) for a maximum of six 
years. The waiver will be awarded based upon academic excellence. A stipend 
may be provided by the research sponsor during the PhD portion of the program.

SHORT TERM RESEARCH TRAINING PROGRAM (STRTP) 

In an effort to enhance student involvement in biomedical investigation, the 
school encourages students to participate in supervised research projects through 
the Short Term Research Training Program (STRTP). The program is supported 
jointly by a training grant from the National Institutes of Health and the Office 
of the Dean. Both the faculty and administration of the School of Medicine are 
committed to the training of physician-scientists. By encouraging medical stu- 
dent research, the STRTP strives to enhance the connection between the treat- 
ment of patients and the scientific investigations which enable patient care to 
advance. The physician-scientist who bridges both basic and clinical sciences 
and clinical practice is therefore in an ideal position to translate research into 

34 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



clinical application and patient problems into laboratory investigation. Cur- 
rently, research is being conducted in several major areas of interest at the School 
of Medicine which include, but are not limited to behavior, cancer, cardiovas- 
cular disease, endocrinology, environmental health, epidemiology, infections, 
immunology, neuroscience, respiration, toxicology and virology. 

Fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis and currently provide 
$300 per week for eight-to- 1 2 weeks of full-time participation. These experiences 
are available to incoming students during the summer before their freshman year, 
and to medical students generally during the summers after their freshman year. 
On occasion, awards are made to students during the summer after their sopho- 
more year or to seniors during the year. 

STRTP funds are not available to students with master's or doctoral 
degrees, to those who are involved in doctoral dissertation research or to students 
with alternative sources of research funding. However, the program may supple- 
ment some alternate sources up to the level of STRTP fellows. Students selected 
to participate in the program are registered in and attend a summer colloquium 
(4 basic science credits) consisting of scientific seminars and lectures in com- 
puterized bibliographic search techniques, research methodology and presenta- 
tion, and ethics o( human and animal experimentation. These students also 
present their research to fellow students and faculty during the summer and on 
Medical Student Research Day. 

The STRTP provides limited funded opportunities for students to con- 
duct research in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, through the University of Mary- 
land-Erasmus University Schools of Medicine Exchange Program. In addition, a 
year-out program is funded by a grant from the American Heart Association to 
the STRTP for those students who wish to immerse themselves in a research 
experience for a full year, normally between the sophomore and junior years. 

The Short Term Research Training Program also offers summer 
research fellowships to undergraduate minority students, the purpose being to 
encourage underrepresented minority students to consider the possibility. of a 
career in one of the health professions and/or biomedical research. The program 
provides students with a realistic understanding of the biomedical research envi- 
ronment through hands-on experience, contact with appropriate role models, 
and application procedures for professional and graduate schools. Twenty tour 
(24) positions are available for minority undergraduate students to conduct 
research for 10-12 weeks during the summer months at the University of Mary- 
land at Baltimore campus and at the University of Maryland Baltimore County. 
Trainees will work under the direct supervision of experienced scientists and will 
receive $250 per week for the 10-12 weeks period. Applications are due in the 
Office of Student Affairs by the last day of February. 

Applicants for the undergraduate minority program musl be enrolled in 
an undergraduate school and be in good standing at the time of application. 
Although minority students from any State may apply, preference will be given 
to Maryland residents attending a school within the state or elsewhere. Poten- 
tial trainees must not have graduated at the tune the traineeship begins .\nA

PROGRAM OF CONTINUING MEDICAL EDUCATION 

The School of Medicine, University of Maryland at Baltimore, is concerned with 
three phases in the education of physicians: undergraduate, graduate and post- 
graduate or continuing medical education. To fulfill its role in the last of these, the 
School of Medicine maintains a program of continuing medical education (CME) 
that offers substantive and accessible training to the state's physicians. The CME 
Program is administered by the assistant dean for continuing medical education 
and a full-time staff, with the assistance of a faculty advisory committee. 

The programs offered are approved by the American Medical Associa- 
tion for credit in Category 1 (towards its Physician's Recognition Award) and by 
the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education. To the greatest 
extent possible, programs are structured around the educational needs o{ prac- 
ticing physicians. Both the type and content of the instructional programs, as 
well as their instructional design, are varied in order to satisfy the learning needs 
of as many physicians as possible. Courses and other educational activities spon- 
sored by this program also can be used by physicians to meet the Maryland 
requirements for relicensure.

THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND MEDICAL SYSTEM 

The University of Maryland Medical System is a private, nonprofit institution 
comprised of the University of Maryland Hospital, the University of Maryland 
Cancer Center, the R Adams C bwley Shock Trauma Center and the Institute oi 
Psychiatry and Human Behavior. Established in July 1984, it was previously an 
agency of the state oi Maryland. The medical system is the primary clinical set- 
ting for the School of Medicine. It is dedicated to providing exemplary health 
care for the people of Maryland, to preparing students and physicians in training 

RESOURCES • W 



for the practice of medicine and the allied health professions, and to carrying out 
research to improve the quality of health care. 

Since its founding in 1 823 , the hospital has become a major tertiary care 
referral center that offers the full range of specialized medical and surgical ser- 
vices. In recent years, as the number of health care facilities in urban centers has 
decreased, the medical system has assumed increasing responsibility for its sur- 
rounding community. As a result, more than 100,000 city residents look to the 
University of Maryland Medical System as their primary source of health care. 

The 747-bed hospital is one of the nation's busiest. In one year, it 
records approximately 23,000 inpatient admissions, 150,000 outpatient visits, 
nearly ^0,000 emergency room visits and 2,000 births. Every day, nearly 5,000 
people pass through the hospital's doors. The senior medical staff — more than 
600 physicians — is comprised of the clinical faculty of the School of Medicine 
who supervise training o{ the more than 400 graduate physician house staff as 
well as the medical students. 

Because of its combined professional and academic environment, many 
outstanding treatment programs and research facilities have been developed at 
the medical system. The R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center of the Mary- 
land Institute for Emergency Medical Services Systems and the University of 
Maryland Cancer Center are two prime examples. 

The R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, linked with the statewide 
network of emergency communications, transportation and medical care facili- 
ties, is second to none. It provides high-speed emergency service to nearly 3,000 
critically injured persons each year — the most severe multiple trauma cases in 
the state — with an impressive 92% survival rate. A heliport on the roof of the 
$44 million R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center facilitates rapid transport 
of the most severely injured and acutely ill from around the state. 

In the Cancer Center, collaboration between research scientists and 
research clinicians has resulted in notable efforts in treating breast, lung and blood- 
related cancers. It was at the Cancer Center that researchers pioneered the freez- 
ing o( a leukemia patient's own platelets for later use during relapses. The center's 
physicians work closely with other oncology programs within the hospital, tailor- 
ing the balance among surgery, radiation and anti-cancer drugs for each patient's 
optimal treatment plan. A bone marrow transplant service will open in 1992. 

The hospital's intensive care units serve seven medical specialties. Its 
neonatal intensive care nursery serves critically ill newborns airlifted from 
throughout Maryland. 

An organ transplant service offers the latest surgical techniques for 
patients suffering from kidney, heart and pancreatic diseases and is the only one 
in Maryland offering pancreas/kidney transplants and lung transplants. The hos- 
pital recently installed new cardiovascular laboratories that support the state's 
comprehensive cardiology program for children and adults. The Stroke Data 
Bank, part of the medical system's Stroke Center, is one of only four in the United 
States. The institution's neurosurgery division has attracted national attention 
for its innovative techniques in the treatment of brain tumors. A Gammaknife 

40 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



Center, due to open in 1992, will allow patients with inoperable brain tumors a 
new chance for survival. The high-risk pregnancy, multiple sclerosis and mag- 
netic resonance imaging centers offer the most advanced technology possible. 

Coexistent with these technologies is the medical system's commit- 
ment to providing excellent primary care as well as specialized medical care. This 
is demonstrated by the presence, since 1984, of University Health Center, an 
ambulatory care facility that incorporates family practice, general adult medicine 
and several specialty services. It is located one block from the medical system 
building. Ambulatory care also is provided in the hospital by separate emergency 
units for children and adults. 

The University of Maryland Medical System has grown both profes- 
sionally and physically during the years. Today, through partnerships with the 
university's professional schools, the medical system is the training site for phar- 
macists, social workers, dentists, nurses and other health professionals and tech- 
nicians. This interprofessional environment is a unique and valued characteristic 
of the University of Maryland Medical System. 

AFFILIATIONS 

Recognizing the importance of providing excellent clinical experiences with 
stimulating faculty and mentors, the School of Medicine has developed a com- 
prehensive network of affiliations designed to encompass the continuum of med- 
ical care including ambulatory, acute hospital, home care, rehabilitation and 
chronic care. In all programs medical students are trained by and fully supervised 
only by School of Medicine, University of Maryland at Baltimore faculty. 

Over the past five years a significant effort to coordinate, expand and 
improve the ambulatory care experience has resulted in an extensive ambulatory 
care network of opportunities. Clinical experiences are offered in multi-discipli- 
nary teaching clinics, faculty practices, community clinics, private practices and 
hospital-based ambulatory care programs. Model geriatric clinical education pro- 
grams, designed at three facilities with large cohorts of elderly patients, serve as 
stimulating educational experiences where computer-assisted learning augments 
the faculty preceptor patient experience. 

Academic tertiary care experience demonstrating state of the art tech- 
nology and ongoing exciting clinical research is offered at the three major affili- 
ates; namely, the University of Maryland Medical System, the Baltimore VA 
Medical Center and Mercy Hospital. Additionally, five community hospitals 
with major commitments to the importance of a teaching environment serve as 
outstanding opportunities for primary and secondary health experiences. These 
community hospitals attract highly competitive interns and residents who wish 
to train in a community hospital atmosphere. 

A successful network of community, state and federal psychiatric facilities 
has resulted in a widely acclaimed statewide program tor psychiatry training. Spe- 
cial clinical research experience in psychiatry is additionally ottered at the Institute 
of Psychiatry and Human Behavior t m<.\ .it the Pern, Point VA Medic.il C 'enter.

Experience in rehabilitation, home care and chronic medical care is 
offered through six facilities, each offering special aspects of expertise for those 
who wish to pursue psychiatry, neuro-rehabilitation and geriatrics. 

The following training centers have formal institutional level affilia- 
tions: University of Maryland Medical System (includes Shock Trauma and 
Cancer Center), Baltimore Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Union Memorial

BALTIMORE VETERANS ADMINISTRATION MEDICAL CENTER 

In November 1992 a new 324-bed VA Medical Center will open adjacent to the 
medical school and UMMS. Designed to additionally support a large outpatient 
program with extensive primary care as well as subspecialty experiences and 
ambulatory surgery, the new VA has been designed as a flagship facility. The first 
radiology service in the nation to offer a completely filmless program has been 
made possible by new advances in computer archiving and digital processing 
of images. Diagnostic quality radiographs are available on over 80 monitors 
throughout the medical center, providing expanded opportunities for student 
and house staff education and improved patient care. 

A fully computerized patient information system, including bedside 
terminals, allows for ease of patient care and reduced nonproductive time for 
students, as well as instantaneous clinical queries for clinical research and con- 
tinuous improvement in quality of patient care. Major increases in support staff 
assigned to house staff teams has resulted in decreased "scut" work activities of 
students and residents, as support staff is more frequently available for routine 
phlebotomy, intravenous line adjustments, escort services and clerical support 
services. A major reconfiguration of nursing and support staff has been combined 
with computer designed programs to increase the efficiency o( the medical care 
process so that students, house staff and faculty can better spend their time on 
direct rather than indirect patient care and on stimulating educational and clin- 
ical research areas rather than on cumbersome support delivery problems. 

There is close integration of the faculty, resident and undergraduate lev- 
els with the School of Medicine in the disciplines of medicine, surgery, psychia- 
try, neurology, anesthesiology, pathology, radiology, rehabilitation medicine, 
geriatrics and ambulatory care. Special programs in women's health care, endo- 
scopic surgery, low-vision assistance, stroke therapy and a tertiary oncology cen- 
ter are planned for the new facility. Forty-two research investigators have funded 



42 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



research programs in areas including infectious disease, geriatrics exercise phys- 
iology, cardiology, immunology, neurology, oncology and schizophrenia. 

AREA HEALTH EDUCATION CENTER PROGRAM 

One of the University o( Maryland at Baltimore's commitments to improving 
health care and delivery programs in primary care is the Area Health Education 
Center (AHEC) program. 

The AHEC program has been developed to provide a comprehensive 
health care education program for undergraduate and graduate medical students, 
as well as for students from the other UMAB professional schools. AHECs are 
"multiple health education and training centers that attract students, interns and 
residents to the several geographic areas, thereby attracting increased numbers 
of practicing physicians, encouraging development of health care facilities, pro- 
viding for the training of additional numbers o( allied health care professionals 
and increasing capabilities for the existing program of graduate and continuing 
medical education and health training." 

The University of Maryland at Baltimore AHEC is located in Cumber- 
land, a rural community in Western Maryland. This center affords students the 
opportunity to understand and experience the valuable and rewarding benefits 
of delivering primary health care in a rural environment. 

It is a matter of school policy that students are required to spend eight 
weeks of their senior year in clinical education at an ambulatory site. Some stu- 
dents elect to spend this mandatory rotation at this site. In addition, senior med- 
ical students may choose a rotation here as an elective in primary care. It is hoped 
that these experiences will encourage students to consider practice in similar set- 
tings and that students will gain a firm appreciation o( the special health needs 
of rural populations.

for medical education. 

Prematriculation Summer Program: The purpose of this program is to provide 
an academic orientation to the medical curriculum to aid in making the transi- 
tion from undergraduate education to medical school. This six-week program 
includes one week of learning skills workshops and class orientation, four weeks 
of classes simulating the first semester schedule and final exam week. Classes are 
taught by seven medical students who participate in an intensive one-week 
teacher training program and receive elective credit. Faculty mentors advise 
tutor/teachers regarding course content and resources. Enrollment is voluntary; 
full participation of enrolled students is mandatory. Up to 20 entering freshman 
may participate. 

Prematriculation Workshop: The purpose is to provide an academic orienta- 
tion to the medical curriculum for all entering freshman students. This program 

44 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



is a one-day learning skills workshop presented prior to orientation and registra- 
tion. Attendance is voluntary. 

Academic Monitoring: The purpose of this activity is to identify and contact 
first- and second-year medical students who show (a) poor academic perfor- 
mance — to improve their current course performance through appropriate inter- 
vention; and (b) successful performance — to identify potential tutors. Contact 
with students is initiated as soon as possible following each examination. 

Early Assessment Exam: The purpose of this exam is to initiate academic mon- 
itoring to the freshman class as early as possible in the freshman fall semester, 
prior to most course exams. Two and one-half weeks after classes begin, short 
exams in biochemistry, gross anatomy, and histology are administered during a 
half-day session; results are distributed to students immediately. Attendance is 
mandatory but results are not used in grading. 

Academic Counseling: The purpose is to identify problems contributing to poor 
academic performance, and to recommend appropriate resources for corrective 
or supportive action to improve academic performance. Direct support regarding 
learning skills, time-management and exam-taking; and referral to other appro- 
priate university services and offices are part of the program. All enrolled med- 
ical students are eligible to participate. 

Peer Tutoring: The purpose of this service is to provide tutorial assistance for 
first- and second-year medical students to improve academic performance in 
basic science courses, overall retention rate and, ultimately, performance on 
licensure examinations. Medical student tutors provide individual and group 
tutorials at no cost to students. Tutors are approved by faculty and participate in 
a tutor-training program. 

Board Preparation: The purpose of this activity is to provide structured review 
activities to improve performance on NBE Part I. Two activities are scheduled at 
the beginning of the spring semester: half-day workshop — exam-taking tech- 
niques and strategies for preparing for boards, followed by a one-day mock 
board — self-assessment to set priorities for review. Participants are enrolled med- 
ical students eligible to sit for NBE Part I. 

Learning Resources Center and Clinical Media Library: The basic sciences 
media library provides students with access to many self-instructional materials 
including videotapes, slide-tapes, computer-assisted instruction, lecture tapes 
and reference books. A clinical media library, located in the Frank C. Bressler 
Research Building, houses materials similar to those of the Learning Resources 
Center, but with a clinical orientation. 



• 45 



Computer Learning Center (CLC): To make the benefits of information tech- 
nology available to medical students, the School of Medicine staffs maintains the 
Computer Learning Center (CLC). Classroom instruction is provided in addi- 
tion to individual access to microcomputers and support of their use by medical 
students and students of other schools. The CLC is located on the second floor 
oftheMSTF. 

The Office of Medical Education also provides illustrative and photographic 
services. 

Illustration: Services include comprehensive renderings of surgical and clinical 
techniques, anatomical renderings, statistical charts and other graphic represen- 
tation. This section also handles simple and comprehensive design and finishing 
of flyers, brochures, programs and posters; and layout and paste-up for offset 
printing and photographic copying. In addition, they design displays and 
exhibits. Most of the above is accomplished through computer technology. 

Photography: The division handles photographic copying of flat material such 
as written matter, x-rays, laboratory tracings and data; photography of specimens, 
equipment set-ups, surgical, clinical and laboratory activities; and portraiture for 
school-related purposes. The division also does slide duplication and motion pic- 
ture photography and acts as a collection station for commercial processing of 
color photography. Computer-developed color slides are a major product o( the 
photography laboratory. 

HEALTH SCIENCES LIBRARY 

The Health Sciences Library is the first library established by a medical school 
in the United States and a recognized leader in state-of-the-art information tech- 
nology. It is the Regional Medical Library for 10 states, the District of Columbia, 
Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands as part of the biomedical information network 
of the National Library of Medicine. 

The library contains more than 290,000 volumes including 3,100 cur- 
rent journal titles, and is ranked in size among the top 1 5 health sciences libraries 
in the country. The library's online catalog allows users to look for materials by 
title, author, subject, key word, call number, series, meeting name and organiza- 
tion name. The online catalog can be accessed from any computer terminal on 
the UMAB campus that is linked to the campus network or from any dial access 
terminal. 

The library currently supports several computerized search services: 
MaryMED, English language journals owned by the library and indexed in Index 
Medicus in the last three years, a subset of the National Library o( Medicine's 
MEDLINE database; HSL Current Contents®, recent citations from sections of 
the print version; CD-Rom Lan, containing PSYCLIT, CIN AHL, MicroCat and 



46 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



Books in Print; CRABS (Computerized Reference and Bibliographic Services); 
and BRS AfterDark. 

In addition to standard reference services, many innovative educational 
programs are available throughout the Health Sciences Library including infor- 
mation literacy and management seminars to help patrons to better access, eval- 
uate and manage their information. Information specialists are assigned as 
liaisons to every school where they participate in program design to meet the 
needs of the school and in collection development in their subject areas within 
the library. There is also an active consultation program where students can go 
for one-on-one help to aid in library research. 

INFORMATION SERVICES 

Microcomputer support for faculty, staff and students as well as mainframe 
research and instructional computing on the IBM 4341 are provided through 
Academic Computing/Health Informatics (ACHI), a department of Informa- 
tion Services at the University of Maryland at Baltimore. Computers in several 
Technology Assisted Learning (TAL) Centers are available for use by the cam- 
pus community and for training in health informatics applications packages. 

A full complement o( programming and statistical languages such as 
SAS, SPSS-X and BMDP are available for the mainframe computer. ACHI will 
lease both SAS/PC and SPSS/PC + microcomputer software packages at nomi- 
nal rates. 

Free worldwide electronic mail accounts, via the Professional Office 
System (PROFS), enable faculty, staff and students to exchange notes, files and 
documents with others both at UMAB and internationally via Bitnet, which 
links computers at more than 500 academic institutions. 

MEDICAL ALUMNI ASSOCIATION 

The Medical Alumni Association has, since 1895, served all graduates, students, 
faculty, staff and physicians affiliated with the School of Medicine. 

Located in Davidge Hall, 522 West Lombard Street, the Medical 
Alumni Association office is open weekdays. Among its many activities, the 
association coordinates the Alumni Reunion in early May, and publishes the 
quarterly Bulletin. The Medical Alumni Association sponsors an annual social 
event for each medical school class. 

Since the association inaugurated the Annual Giving Drive in 1978, 
donations totaling more than $4 million have been raised, thanks to the hun- 
dreds of alumni phonathon volunteers who have annually called on their class* 
mates for donations. One million dollars from alumni supported the restorat ion 
of Davidge Hall in 1982. Lectures, research and student loans funded by alumni 
contributions provide a me. ins to enrich and implement the programs and goals 
ot the School ot Medicine on a daily basis.

Student Life 



OFFICE OF STUDENT AFFAIRS 

The Office of Student Affairs is designed to provide guidance, advice, help and 
administrative services to students enrolled in medicine. In addition, the office 
is responsible for monitoring student registration, progress and advancement, 
graduation and all aspects of student life related to undergraduate medical edu- 
cation. To this end, the office employs one full-time associate dean and one full- 
time assistant dean, two part-time assistant deans, a coordinator and clerical staff. 

While the entire staff is available to offer assistance to all students, some 
staff members also assume a specialty area within their overall functions. These 
specialty areas include minority affairs, senior elective advising, student fellow- 
ships, national residency programs advising, counseling and administration of 
the Vertical Advisory System. 

Office of Minority Affairs. The School of Medicine is firmly commit- 
ted to significantly increasing the number of underrepresented minority students 
and faculty. Accordingly, the school has a strong outreach recruitment and 
retention program to attract and graduate minority students who are African 
Americans, native Americans, mainland Puerto Ricans and Mexican Ameri- 
cans. The school is actively involved in the Association of American Medical 
Colleges' Project 3,000 by 2000, which is designed to increase the number of 
underrepresented minority medical students in all U.S. medical schools to 3,000 
by the year 2000. Recruitment and academic enrichment activities are provided 
for students at the high school, undergraduate and medical school levels. 

The Office of Minority Affairs works cooperatively with the Office of 
Admissions, the Office of Academic Development, the Office of Financial Aid 
and entities in the University of Maryland Medical System (University Hospi- 
tal) to carry out this mission. Activities include information dissemination to 
all segments of the public, paid summer research preceptorships and volunteer 
opportunities at the School of Medicine and University of Maryland Medical 
System. In addition, the office also assists in the school's minority faculty devel- 
opment program and community outreach efforts that will offer exposure to 
health related and research oriented career opportunities. 

The Office of Minority Affairs also assists in the school's minority fac- 
ulty development program and in community outreach efforts. For additional

Elective Program. The Office of Student Affairs compiles course offerings, 
schedules courses and changes of electives, and provides for both evaluation of a stu- 
dent's performance during electives and evaluation of the elective courses taken. 

Residency Planning. The office maintains a residency advisement 
program that includes counseling, referral to faculty, alumni and community 
resources and workshops on residency selection provided during the junior year. 
Recent graduates are surveyed annually so that feedback from a number of resi- 
dency programs of interest to our graduates is kept as current as possible. 

Vertical Advisory System. At the beginning of the freshman year stu- 
dents are assigned two faculty advisors. Generally, one of the advisors is in the 
basic sciences and at least one is a physician. Each pair of advisors is usually 
assigned three or four incoming students per year with the intention that the rela- 
tionship will continue through the four years of medical school. The advisory 
system provides a helpful, ongoing interchange concerning academic, social, per- 
sonal and career problems and opportunities. 

Human Dimensions in Medical Education (HDME) Program. The 
HDME Program provides opportunities for informal activities among students 
and faculty outside the classroom setting. These range from social gatherings to 
small group discussions of concerns and feelings related to the personal and pro- 
fessional aspects of medical education and practice. 

Students may elect to participate in the HDME Program at any point in 
their medical school career. Many enter the program by attending the prefresh- 
man orientation retreat held in late August. The retreat is attended by students 
from all levels of training, faculty members and in many cases spouses or close 
friends. Participants thus are provided an opportunity to get acquainted in an 
informal and intimate off-campus setting. Much of the time at the retreat is spent 
in intensive small group sessions. Topics of discussion are determined in each 
group, but typically include adjustment to medical school, the impact of a med- 
ical career on domestic life, and the problem of setting priorities among various 
professional and personal demands. Recreational activities also are included in 
the four-day experience. 

Students in the HDME Program also participate in the Vertical Advi- 
sory System (see Office of Student Affairs), but normally are assigned faculty 
advisors within the HDME program. 

HDME was conceived at The Center for the Study of the Person in La 
Jolla, California. The program is planned and operated Locally by student-faculty 
committees. One goal of the program is to provide an environment in which stu- 
dents and faculty advisors can develop a bond during the tour years of medical 
school. Another desired outcome is the development of effective communica- 
tion and listening skills that will enable medical students, house officers and fac- 
ulty members to become better health care providers. 

Parents' Day. Usually in mid-tall, freshman students are asked to notify 
the Office of Student Affairs of two or three people they would like to have 
invited to Parents' Day — generally, parents or partners. Following .1 continental 
breaktast, those attending hear presentations from the dem, the associate deans 

STUDENT LIFE • -W 



for student affairs and medical education, and senior faculty members represent- 
ing some of the major medical specialties. Upperclass students give their versions 
of life in the preclinical and clinical years, and a student-spouse discusses med- 
ical school from the viewpoint of a "significant other." There is time for informal 
discussion with the presenters and other members of the faculty, and the morn- 
ing ends with a tour of Davidge Hall. Family members often travel substantial dis- 
tances for this event and it provides an opportune time to show them around 
campus and the Baltimore area during the afternoon. 

STUDENT GOVERNMENT 

The Student Council is the official representative body for medical students. The 
council consists of its president, vice president, secretary and treasurer and two 
representatives from each class and the class presidents. The group performs sev- 
eral tasks that are important to the proper functioning of the many student orga- 
nizations. Social events for the entire medical school, including student-faculty 
wine and cheese parties, are funded and organized by the council. Election of 
class officers is handled by the Student Council as well. The council serves as a 
liaison between the administration and the student body should the need for such 
a liaison arise. 

An important role of the Student Council is the budgeting o( student 
activities fees funds. The council votes on the distribution of funds to the vari- 
ous student organizations based on such factors as proposed costs of planned 
activities, benefit to the medical school community and the number of students 
involved in the organization. 

STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS 

Alpha Omega Alpha ( AOA). Alpha Omega Alpha, the national medical honor 
society, has a chapter at Maryland comprised of students who are elected to mem- 
bership at the end of their junior year or beginning o( their senior year. Election 
to AOA is based on scholastic achievement, service to the school, qualities of 
leadership, integrity and fairness to colleagues. Members coordinate programs 
and lectures with the goal of furthering academic interest and curiosity. Programs 
of recent years have included a lunchtime lecture series on topics in the history 
of medicine, an EKG interpretation course offered at the VA Medical Center and 
sponsorship of a clinical visiting professorship. 

American Medical Student Association. The University of Maryland Chapter 
of the American Medical Student Association (AMSA) offers the opportunity 
to become actively involved with a group of dynamic, concerned medical stu- 
dents on the local and national levels. AMSA is involved in many service activ- 
ities; microscope and used book sales, coordination of the noontime films and 
lectures as well as the student telephone and housing directories, orientation 
activities, workshops, projects and parties. Fundraising projects help to defray 

50 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



expenses of members attending workshops and regional and national meetings.. 
On the national level, AMSA promotes the interest of public health and the 
medical students serve as a forum and information clearing-house for issues of 
major importance. Benefits to AMSA members include a four-year subscription 
to The New Physician, special interest task force newsletters, informational book- 
lets, discounts on medical texts, life insurance policies, the AMSA Mastercard, 
the "HEAL Deal" for repayment of HEAL loans at lower interest rates, a new low- 
interest loan program with increasing monies available each successive year of 
school and unique educational experiences both at home and abroad. 

American Medical Women's Association (AMWA) Student Branch. The 

AMWA Student Branch at the University of Maryland is a dynamic group 
responsive to the needs o( the female medical student. While its first commit- 
ment remains to provide support and promote friendship among students, faculty 
and physicians, AMWA also provides a network where students can meet and 
discuss issues such as lifestyles in medicine, career choices, women's health and 
political issues important to women and the student body at-large. Local activi- 
ties include potluck dinners where special guest speakers address issues, monthly 
noon-time business meetings and get-acquainted gatherings with students and 
faculty. 

Asian Professional Students Association. The Asian Professional Students 
Association (APSA) was formed by a group of medical students in 1984, and 
since then the association has grown to include members o{ other schools at 
UMAB. The APSA is open to all students, teaching staff and employees, regard- 
less of race, cultural background, sex or country of origin. The goals of the asso- 
ciation are to encourage dialogue among fellow students o( different cultural 
backgrounds and to provide a platform for those who appreciate Asian culture. 
APSA also sponsors education and social activities for its members and friends. 

Big Sib Program. Each year an upperclassman (usually a sophomore) "adopts" 
an entering freshman as his/her little sib. Newly admitted students receive cor- 
respondence from their fellow big brothers/sisters during the spring semester 
prior to their entry. The program is sponsored by students with support of the 
Admissions Committee, and is designed to allow entering students to address 
their questions and concerns to fellow students who have already experienced 
"life of the medical student." 

Christian Medical Society. The Christian Medical Society (CMS) is a local 
chapter of a national organization that exists to provide support and encourage- 
ment to Christian medical students and physicians and to promote Christian 
practices and ideals within the medical community. The group meets m the 
evening once .1 week for fellowship, prayer and discussion. A meal is shared every 
other week. Discussion topio for the meetings include bible study, short-term 
missions, ethics, C christian family lite within the medical profession and evange- 

STUDENT LIFI • 



lism. In addition, the CMS provides volunteers to help staff the Baltimore Res- 
cue Mission, which gives medical aid to the homeless. 

Family Practice Club. The Family Practice Club is sponsored by the Maryland 
Academy of Family Physicians and the Department of Family Medicine. Mem- 
bership fees are paid by the Maryland Academy and members receive monthly 
professional journals free of charge. Four official meetings are held each year dur- 
ing which students have the opportunity to meet informally with practicing fam- 
ily physicians. These meetings are usually informal panel discussions focusing on 
subjects relevant to family practice which are not covered in the academic cur- 
riculum. The club also encourages student leadership at state and national levels. 

Gertrude Stein Medical Society. The Gertrude Stein Medical Society is a group 
of medical students whose goal is to foster support among gay and lesbian students 
and to encourage interaction and education among all students at the university. 
The group seeks to help other students and faculty understand the special needs 
of the gay and lesbian community through education and community service. The 
group meets bimonthly with potluck dinners and other social events. 

Human Dimensions in Medical Education (HDME). The Human Dimensions 
in Medical Education (HDME) Program sponsors a four-day, preorientation 
retreat in Western Maryland each August for incoming freshmen that is run 
jointly by upperclass students and faculty members. The retreat enables incoming 
students to get to know each other and their advisors in an informal setting — prior 
to the student orientation "downtown." Each student is assigned to a small group 
of entering freshmen and upperclass students led by one or both of the faculty 
members who will serve as the student's advisors for the duration of medical 
school. Emphasis is placed on meeting others as people, apart from traditional 
"professor/medical student" roles. Spouses and "significant others" of students and 
faculty are welcome. They, too, are assigned to small groups. In addition to small 
group meetings, retreat participants spend time together at meals, parties and at 
evening events. Unscheduled afternoons may be spent enjoying waterskiing, 
horseback riding, hiking, golfing, swimming and playing in the nearby waterfall. 

Jewish Medical Student Organization. The Jewish Medical Student Association 
encourages all medical students, regardless of specific affiliation (i.e., orthodox, 
conservative, reform or non-Jewish) to join and participate in the group's activ- 
ities. The association works closely with the Jewish Community Center's Office 
for Graduate Studies, which provides sponsorship for many of its activities, 
including Friday night dinners, talks on Jewish medical ethics and the building 
of a sukkah. The association also works with other schools on campus and in the 
Baltimore area to plan joint activities. 

Maryland State Medical Student Association. The Maryland State Medical 
Student Association (MSMSA) is a component of the Medical and Chirurgical 

52 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



Society (Med-Chi) of the state of Maryland, which is a state component of the 
American Medical Association. MSMSA is involved in issues of health care, 
medical education and peer review, especially in the state of Maryland. MSMSA 
and AMA memberships are usually solicited together and membership benefits 
include subscriptions to the Maryland Medical Journal and AMA News. MSMSA 
provides active student representation in Med-Chi and the AMA. 

Medicine as a Second Career. The goal of this organization is to foster a healthy 
and successful transition from the working world to medical school. Networking 
with peers provides an opportunity to learn vicariously. An additional goal is to 
foster positive student and faculty relationships. Medical students who are non- 
traditional with respect to their personal and professional background are excep- 
tional in many respects. The magnitude of the sacrifices and hence the 
motivations are immense for second-career students. People who come to med- 
ical school after an interlude building a career and/or raising a family have spe- 
cial concerns; they also bring great personal and professional assets to their 
potential as physicians. 

Organization of Student Representatives. The Association of American Med- 
ical Colleges (AAMC) was founded over 100 years ago to improve the quality of 
American medical education. It now includes membership of 127 medical 
schools, 85 academic societies such as the American College o( Physicians and 
435 teaching hospitals. It maintains numerous data sources available to its mem- 
bers and works cooperatively with other medical organizations such as the Amer- 
ican Medical Association. It provides information and testimony to the U.S. 
Congress and other federal agencies concerning medical and health-related 
issues. The Organization of Student Representatives (OSR), the AAMC's stu- 
dent voice, is composed of one student representative from each participating 
medical school. OSR members gather at an annual meeting each autumn to dis- 
cuss matters of concern to the nation's medical students and to elect an Admin- 
istrative Board. The 12-member Administrative Board meets quarterly with the 
boards of other AAMC Councils to formulate AAMC programs and policies 
reflecting student views. OSR business is also conducted at regional spring meet- 
ings. The OSR delegate channels AAMC information to the student body on 
medical education issues such as curriculum changes, the residency match and 
student indebtedness. 

The Other Half. "The Other Half is a support group open to all medical in- 
dents and their significant others (i.e., husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends) 
who are interested. The Other Halfs goal is both social and supportive. Main- 
taining a relationship while in medical school can be difficult and knowing other 
people in the same situation can be helpful id both students and then partners. 
Gatherings such as the potluck dinners, wine tasting, pizza part} and wine and 
cheese parties have been popular activities. 



S I l DENT LIFE • 53 



Student Environmental Association. Members meet informally several times 
throughout the year to address environmental issues of interest. In the past mem- 
bers have been concerned primarily with a recycling campaign that collects alu- 
minum and paper products donated by medical and graduate students. Proceeds 
from such collections are donated to neighborhood shelters for the homeless. 
Members also plan outings to beautify public parks, reclaiming metals and paper 
in the process. The club discusses issues of the environment on local and national 
levels and plans to invite several outside authorities to suggest how medical stu- 
dents may contribute to environmental movements that they support. 

Student National Medical Association. The University of Maryland Chapter o( 
the Student National Medical Association (SNMA) is a black medical student 
organization that seeks primarily to provide academic and social support for 
minority medical students at the University of Maryland at Baltimore. The 
SNMA organizes study groups, provides valuable course information and review 
material, and facilitates organized discussions between upperclassmen and enter- 
ing students on course requirements and strategies. 

The SNMA also seeks to involve itself in health and educational activ- 
ities that benefit the surrounding community and its youth. In past years the 
SNMA has been involved in tutoring local high school students, health screen- 
ing programs in the community and in presentations informing high school and 
college students o( medical school opportunities. In addition, the SNMA has 
sponsored activities for black history month that have included seminars and 
films. SNMA is active in programs that promote greater interaction among black 
students, physicians, faculty and alumni. 

PUBLICATIONS 

Academic Handbook. The Acosmic Handbook is the "official word" on medical 
school policy and life, written by those who run the various programs described — 
administrators, faculty, students. Although the book is prepared through the 
Office of Student Affairs, student participation and feedback contribute signifi- 
cantly to its effectiveness. 

AMSA Directory. With financial support from the Office of Student Affairs and 
the Office of Admissions, the American Medical Student Association (AMSA) 
at UMAB compiles a student address and telephone directory each fall. The book 
is available to all medical students at no cost. 

Snowdays. Snowdays is a booklet written by the freshman class for entering fresh- 
men. Designed to acquaint students with the University of Maryland at Balti- 
more and surrounding areas and metropolitan Baltimore, it includes information 
on housing, eateries and entertainment that would be helpful to people new to 
the city. Snowdays was conceived in the hope of providing freshmen with infor- 
mal ion that might prove useful prior to their starting the school year. 

54 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



The Yearbook (Terra Mariae Medicus). Since 1896 Terra Mariae Medicus has 
provided wide coverage of student life. It is a collection of moments and memo- 
ries from the four years of medical school put together by the members of each 
senior class. Each senior receives a yearbook, the cost of which is included in the 
student activities fee. 

Zebra Quide. Moving from the basic science classrooms to the third- and fourth- 
year clinical clerkships is a major transition. The Zebra Guide is an introduction 
to the clinical years o( medical school. It was written by students for students. 
The guide contains helpful hints in areas such as getting organized, medical 
records, roundsmanship and formal communications. It also contains step-by- 
step instructions for various procedures performed during clinical clerkships. The 
Zebra Guide is meant to enhance interaction among students, residents and 
attending physicians during clinical clerkships. 

INSTITUTIONAL GOVERNANCE AND PLANNING 

The Committee System. Several committees are actively involved in shaping 
the School of Medicine, particularly the curriculum and other essential aspects 
o( medical education, and students have a voice on these committees. The fol- 
lowing committees/councils include students in their memberships. 

Curriculum Coordinating Committee (CCC) and Subcommittees. The task of 
the Curriculum Coordinating Committee is to continually study and evaluate 
the curriculum and methods o( instruction, to make recommendations concern- 
ing changes and innovations in the curriculum and instructional procedures, to 
make a continuing study of the student achievement evaluation process and to 
recommend changes when necessary. In addition, the CCC Subcommittees, i.e., 
Year I, Year II, Clinical Years and the Electives Committee, each include two 
student representatives elected by their classmates. 

School of Medicine Council. Through the School of Medicine Council, faculty 
and students participate in the development of a variety of medical school policies. 
In addition to their role as policy makers, council members also hear status reports 
from committees appointed by the dean. These include the reports of the Curricu- 
lum Committee, the Annual Admissions Report and the reports of the various 
search committees. The School of Medicine Council meets monthly during the 
academic year, offering students an excellent opportunity to develop an under- 
standing of the issues affecting the operation and plans of the medical school. The 
council has approximately 80 voting members, 1 1 of whom are students. 

Judicial Board. Acceptable behavior within the academic community, includ- 
ing proper behavior on examinations, tails within the purview of the judicial 
review system and its functioning body, the Judicial Board. The system and oper- 

STUDEN1 LIFE • 



ation of the board are defined in a document entitled "Statement of Ethical Prin- 
ciples, Judicial Review System and By-Laws of the Judicial Board." The board 
consists of a chairperson appointed by the dean and representatives of the differ- 
ent groups in the medical school community. Any member of the community 
who directly witnesses an act that he or she deems unethical should report the 
incident in a signed letter to the chairman of the Judicial Board. The board will 
then investigate the issue and hold hearings, as defined in the aforementioned 
document. Findings of the board and its recommendations with respect to the 
accused are forwarded to the dean. Three student representatives, one each from 
the sophomore, junior and senior classes, are appointed by the appropriate class 
presidents. 

Ethical Advisory Committee (University Hospital). This state-mandated com- 
mittee is composed of about 25 physicians, nurses, social workers, administrators, 
clergy, attorneys and other personnel, and welcomes the input of students and 
residents as nonvoting participants. The committee advises hospital staff and 
families on request regarding difficult ethical decisions such as life support for ter- 
minal patients, and also helps develop hospital policy regarding such critical sit- 
uations. The committee also serves an educational function to hospital staff and 
reviews legal and legislative decisions. 

Special Task Forces. On occasion, special committees, task forces and retreats 
are set up to examine school policies or curriculum issues. Where these issues 
have direct relevance to students, the classes are frequently invited to send rep- 
resentatives to these functions. Major changes in policy or curriculum typically 
take two or more years to plan and implement, and this may be frustrating to stu- 
dents who will be members of each class for only one year. At the same time, how- 
ever, each group of entering students reaps the benefits of changes to which their 
predecessors have contributed and now have the opportunity to leave a similar 
legacy to their successors. 

STUDENT AND EMPLOYEE HEALTH 

Health care for medical students is available at Student and Employee Health, 
UMAB Professional Building at 419 West Redwood Street. Monday-Friday and 
after-hour coverage is provided (24 hours a day, 365 days a year) by the faculty 
of the Department of Family Medicine. 

Counseling services are provided at the Counseling Center. Stress, rela- 
tionships and marital problems, loss of a loved one, eating disorders, family con- 
cerns and stressful changes in school or home life are the most common problems 
experienced by students. The center offers individual and group counseling 
weekdays with expanded hours to accommodate individuals needing evening 
appointments. 

At registration all students must pay a health fee that covers all regular 
visits to Student and Employee Health. A wide range o( services is offered,

including routine medical care, minor surgery and gynecological care. Birth con- 
trol pills are available at a reduced cost for students receiving their care through 
Student and Employee Health. Students are responsible for the cost o( any con- 
sultations outside Student and Employee Health, including any diagnostic or lab 
charges not covered by insurance. 

All students are required to have health insurance with certain mini- 
mum benefits. An excellent policy is available through UMAB. At registration, 
all full-time students must either purchase the UMAB policy or waive it by show- 
ing proof of comparable coverage. The deadline for waiving the UMAB policy is 
in late September. If proof of comparable insurance is not received at Student 
and Employee Health by that time, the UMAB policy must be purchased for each 
month the waiver is not presented. Demonstrated proof of comparable insurance 
is required each year the UMAB policy is not purchased. 

All new students are required to complete a Report of Medical History 
and an Immunization Record form that documents immunity to childhood ill- 
nesses. Students failing to present these completed forms as freshmen will not be 
permitted to register for the sophomore year. All incoming students will be 
immunized against Hepatitis B, an occupational illness of physicians and health 
care providers. A series of three immunizations is given and its cost is included 
in student fees. 

All family members can be seen at Family Medicine Specialists, the fac- 
ulty practice of the Department of Family Medicine. The family physicians pro- 
vide care for the entire family, including obstetrical and pediatric care.

Anatomy 

Department of Anatomy 
Professor and Acting Chairman 
Marshall L. Rennels, PhD 

The Department oi Anatomy provides instruction in all o{ the anatomical sci- 
ences: gross anatomy, microscopic anatomy, neurologic anatomy and develop- 
mental anatomy. Courses are offered to medical students and to graduate students 
working toward an MS or PhD degree. The goal of the department in medical edu- 
cation is to provide a basic understanding o( the structural organization of the 
human body as related to normal function. Whenever possible, important clini- 
cal implications and research applications of the material under study are empha- 
sized. The study of human structure includes all levels from gross morphology seen 
in the dissecting room to the fine structure as revealed with the electron micro- 
scope. The neuroanatomy course is taught in an integrated format with neuro- 
physiology, neurochemistry, neurobiology and clinical neurology. 

A knowledge of anatomy is essential to the proper understanding of clin- 
ical practice. Since a full understanding of any basic science can best be obtained 
by direct observation, the anatomy department emphasizes laboratory instruction 
in its gross, microscopic and neurologic anatomy courses. By integrating the the- 
oretical lectures with the practical laboratory assignments, the student is provided 
with a comprehensive and meaningful treatment of the subject. 

RESEARCH INTERESTS 

The faculty of the Department of Anatomy are actively engaged in research on 
several fundamental aspects o( cell biology including developmental biology. 
Projects on spinal cord regeneration, neuronal transplantation, innervation of 
cerebral blood vessels and circulation o( the cerebrospinal fluid are representa- 
tive of departmental interests in neurobiology. Studies of muscle biology focus 
upon atrophy, hypertrophy, growth, regeneration and trophic influences of 
nerves on skeletal muscle. An extensive research program in reproductive biol- 
ogy is focused on the regulation o\ ovarian function.

Computer interfacing and analysis play an important role. 

Other projects include examination of acinar gas mixing using radioiso- 
tope analysis of xenon washout. An automated anesthesia record has been devel- 
oped and is in the process of implementation. Anesthesiology faculty members also 
work in the Department of Pharmacology with interest in GABA receptors and 
mechanisms of anesthetic action. In addition, collaborative projects are underway 
with other investigators in pharmacology, physiology and biological chemistry. 

Ten faculty members and two resident anesthesiologists are actively par- 
ticipating in laboratory studies. Up to three medical students can be accommo- 
dated during the summer with experience provided in instrumentation and 
anesthesia for laboratory animals utilizing many of the interveni ions and measure' 
ments of cardiorespiratory- function used in clinical practice. The students would 
join ongoing research projects and assist with data collection and analysis.

Diagnostic Radiology 

Department of Diagnostic Radiology 
Professor and Acting Chairman 
Gerald S. Johnston, MD 

Since German physicist Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen discovered the x-ray in 
1 895, its use has been greatly expanded in our society. With the advances in tech- 
nique, including computed tomography, radiology now makes or verifies the 
diagnosis in three out of four cases of organic disease. With the addition and inte- 
gration of nuclear medicine, ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging 
(MRI), diagnostic imaging is playing an even more extended role in diagnosis 
and selected (interventional) therapeutic procedures. 

RESEARCH INTERESTS 

Basic science research in the Department of Radiology focuses upon digital radi- 
ography and fluoroscopy sensor development. Departmental re-searchers are 
building a high-resolution, scanning solid state x-ray detector for digital radi- 
ographic studies, particularly mammography. The department is also working in 
cooperation with x-ray equipment manufacturers to improve current digital sub- 
traction angiography (DSA) systems. A new area of research being developed is 
the application of computed vision techniques to radiography imaging. This 
effort, in collaboration with the internationally renowned Computer Vision 

64 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



Laboratory at the University of Maryland College Park, will seek to develop 
quantitative measures to assist the radiologist in evaluating the presence, extent 
and severity of disease. An active project is ongoing for evaluating pulsed, low- 
fram rate fluoroscopy for patient exposure reduction. 

Clinical research is this department's main focus and includes several 
long-term projects. Cooperative studies with physicians in gynecologic oncology 
and the University of Maryland Cancer Center are proceeding to establish the 
accuracy and limits of computed tomography and MRI in staging gynecologic 
malignancies and lymphoma. Several projects are under way, in co-operation with 
MIEMSS physicians, evaluating the usefulness of CT and MRI in the diagnosis of 
multiple visceral trauma, hemological trauma and skeletal trauma, particularly 
involving the pelvis and acetabula. Multiple cooperative nuclear-cardiology stud- 
ies are progressing with cardiology, and used angiography equipment is being 
installed in the cardiology laboratory in the Medical School Teaching Facility. 

UNDERGRADUATE MEDICAL PROGRAM 

The Department of Radiology offers the medical student an opportunity to 
acquire a broad base of knowledge touching on almost all aspects of medicine. 
Formal instruction is carried out in the third year with the course RADI 540. The 
required curriculum is supplemented with informal case discussions with the staff 
and contact through interdepartmental rounds and conferences involving radi- 
ology while the student is on the other clinical rotations at the University of 
Maryland Medical System.

three weeks to the Department of Radiology. The group is subdivided to allow 
individual instruction as the student rotates through brief observation periods in 
selected subspecialties within the department. Students also receive an intro- 
duction to the Department of Radiation Oncology. Reading assignments, small 
group slide-tape exercises, a student teaching file and lectures form the core of 
the learning experience. Students attend departmental conferences and some 
joint conferences with other departments. An objective final examination is 
included in the course. 

Third and Fourth Year 

Radiology Elective. Students learn more about properly using diagnostic imag- 
ing and interpreting images. The precise curriculum is flexible, tailored to t he- 
needs of the student's career choice. Students are expected to investigate some 
small aspect of imaging within their area of interest and make a short presenta- 
tion to the faculty and residents. This presentation and overall performance, as 
evaluated by the curriculum supervisor, serve as the evaluation criteria tor this 
elective. RADI 540 is a prerequisite.

Modern epidemiology is a relatively new biomedical discipline at the interface 
of clinical practice and basic medical science. The clinical arena within which 
epidemiologists work is termed preventive medicine. The practice of epidemiol- 
ogy and preventive medicine requires a comprehensive knowledge of clinical 
medicine and basic medical science, as well as research methods, biostatistics and 
social sciences. 

The department is engaged in teaching, research and service across the 
spectrum o( public health and preventive medicine. Programs in clinical epi- 
demiology, biostatistics, environmental and occupational health, health services 
administration and evaluation, health services research, medical effectiveness 
research, gerontology, behavioral science, maternal and child health, interna- 
tional health, health economics and medical informatics are offered. Faculty 
members also conduct research and offer courses, seminars, journal clubs, clini- 
cal assignments and supervised research experiences designed to enhance the 
physician's capabilities in these areas of increasing public concern. 

Interdisciplinary programs with the Divisions of Geographic Medicine 
and Infectious Diseases of the Department of Medicine and the University of 
Maryland Cancer Center are additional resources available to qualified students. 
Other facilities include the Survey Research and Development Center, the 
Health Data Management Center and the Maryland Cancer Registry. 

Required courses in biostatistics, epidemiology, occupational and envi- 
ronmental medicine, organization of the health care system and clinical preven- 
tive medicine are given in the first, second and fourth years of the curriculum. 
The Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine may be chosen by 
MD/PhD students for their work towards the PhD in epidemiology. In addition, 
many of the graduate courses, tutorials and research experiences available to res- 
idents and PhD students are also available to medical students during their elec- 
tive periods. Students are invited to attend departmental seminars and journal 
clubs, which are scheduled each week through the academic year.

ticipate in community health services and supervised practice experiences, as 
well as in basic health care research. 

Within the discipline of family medicine several areas are emphasized. 
The department has a Division of Geriatrics that dates back to 1974 and is a 
national leader in geriatrics education. It was the first specifically dedicated Divi- 
sion of Geriatrics on this campus. Multiple programs, both departmental and 
interdisciplinary, are in place or being formulated. The Supportive Care Unit is 
a unique model for rehabilitation of frail, elderly patients following an acute hos- 
pital stay, focusing on optimization of function with a goal of returning patients 
to home, or the least restrictive environment, upon discharge. The broad spec- 
trum of the division's educational, research and patient care efforts includes the 
pre-elderly well, the hospitalized elderly, the frail homebound elderly, and the 
chronically incapacitated aged patient. The division provides regular housecalls 
for 150 frail homebound elderly, the largest program in the city. The Division of 
Geriatrics is a leader in the field of quality assurance in long-term care facilities. 
Expansion of facilities and activities to continue eminence in this area is in 
progress. 

Faculty development is a major departmental effort, as well. Courses 
and workshops in teaching skills are offered to predoctoral and postdoctoral stu- 
dents. Fellowships in geriatric medicine are offered to residency graduates who 
wish to further develop their skills in the care of geriatric patients. 

RESEARCH INTERESTS 

The research efforts of the Department of Family Medicine reflect the broad 
interests of the department's faculty. Current projects, which are clinically ori- 
ented and relate to current medical problems, range from epidemiologic studies 
to evaluations of specific therapies. The department has a strong interest in 
health promotion and nutrition, especially as it relates to the family and the 
elderly. Collaborative efforts with other departments involve investigations into 
health promotion, infections in the elderly, abdominal pain, informed consent, 
and osteoarthritis. During their last year of training, all Family Medicine resi- 
dents are required to complete a research project and to present their results at 
the Annual Family Medicine Residents' Research Day. The department faculty, 
fellows and residents present their research at nat i< >nal meetings, and in journals, 
books and other publications. 

UNDERGRADUATE MEDICAL PROGRAM 

Longitudinal Elective. Introduced into the curriculum in 1976, this elective per- 
mits students with an interest in family medicine to gain knowledge toward that 

70 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



career objective. The entire elective spans a two-year period and is a survey of 
topics related to family medicine. The curriculum makes every attempt to corre- 
late basic science and clinical science information. The small group format 
allows maximum instructor-student, as well as student-student, interaction. 

Minimester Electives. During the summer months, students may elect to spend 
time in the office of a selected family physician in order to observe the varied pro- 
fessional activities of a physician practicing in the community. During precep- 
torship experiences, students may participate in direct patient care or primary 
health care research. 

Family Care Track Program. The Family Care Track (FCT) is an elective 
undergraduate experience designed to teach medical students the principles of 
family medicine with a focus on the urban, poor, multi-problem family. It pro- 
vides a continuous clinical experience through all four undergraduate years. Stu- 
dents are assigned to follow three families over four years in the department's 
Family Practice Centers. The families are selected to provide exposure to obstet- 
ric, pediatric and geriatric care, and to family dysfunction. Supervision is pro- 
vided to the individual and through the use of small group integration seminars 
for case discussion. The students are also required to complete a community med- 
icine seminar series, a social services preceptorship, a needs assessment, a com- 
munity project, and a four-week clinical preceptorship in sites, including some 
located in health professional shortage areas. 

Up to 20 students are selected each year from the freshman Longitudinal 
Elective in Family Medicine to participate in the Family Care Track Program. Cred- 
its for this elective include: 1 ) one basic science and one nonbasic science credit for 
each year of the longitudinal elective; 2) four weeks of senior elective credit at the 
completion of the program; and 3) introduction to clinical practice credit. 

Senior Elective in Family Practice. In this elective students work with a com- 
munity family physician preceptor. They have the opportunity, under supervi- 
sion, to manage problems typical of a busy practice, ranging from obstetrics to 
geriatrics. Here, there is ample opportunity to be involved in coordinating con- 
tinuous care of patients for four to six weeks. Students begin to understand the 
patient in relationship to family, job and environment. Furthermore, the student 
pbserves the role of the physician in society, the social and civic obligations and 
responsibilities to the patient. Site options range from urban health manpower 
shortage sites to rural private practice. In these varied settings students are 
expected to conduct a limited clinical investigation, using data collected in the 
practice, and to attend weekly Alcoholics Anonymous or Al-Anon meetings in 
the community. 

Senior Internship in Family Practice. The Department of Family Medicine 
offers an eight-week internship to senior students. This is an extensive inpai ieni 
experience utilizing the family medicine inpatient service. Variety i^ a major

attraction as the patients' needs range from newborn care and obstetrics to adult 
general medical and geriatric care. The student is exposed to the family practice 
approach to inpatient care with an emphasis on interdisciplinary, comprehen- 
sive and continuous care. The students participate in night and weekend call. 
Students may opt to accomplish the rotation at University Hospital or Union 
Memorial Hospital. The rotation at Union Memorial is primarily an internal 
medicine experience. 

Senior Ambulatory Clerkship in Family Practice. Students may select the Fam- 
ily Health Center as an option in the required Senior Ambulatory Course. This 
eight-week rotation exposes students to the clinical practice of the Department 
of Family Medicine Residency Program. In this setting students are scheduled to 
see patients daily in the Family Health Center, work with a variety of preceptors 
from the Department of Family Medicine, and participate in didactic sessions. 
This ambulatory experience is designed to expose students to the principles and 
practice of Family Medicine. 

GRADUATE MEDICAL PROGRAM 

The University of Maryland's approved three-year residency in family practice is 
one of the oldest in the nation. Approximately 36 residents are enrolled in a 
three-year program whose goal is to provide comprehensive training in the spe- 
cialty, utilizing the latest information and educational methods. Resident train- 
ing takes place both at University Hospital, where the expertise of faculty in all 
specialties can be utilized, and in several community hospitals where the resi- 
dents are exposed to a wide variety of patient problems. The program adheres 
closely to the educational requirements of the Residency Review Committee for 
Family Practice of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. 
Additionally, every effort is made to see that the curriculum and educational 
experiences are in accordance with the Residency Assistance Program's Criteria 
for Excellence in Training. Flexibility, however, is maintained through the avail- 
ability of electives in order to accommodate the specific needs of the trainee. 
Although the majority of graduates are actively engaged in family practice in 
rural, suburban and urban areas, a significant number are pursuing an academic 
career. 

CONTINUING EDUCATION PROGRAMS 

This phase of the Maryland program is based on the philosophy that the educa- 
tion of the family physician must be a continuum throughout the entire profes- 
sional career. These programs help to prepare family physicians to successfully 
pass each recertification examination as required by the American Board of Fam- 
ily Practice. 

A variety of continuing education programs is offered, ranging from 
short didactic courses to extensive in-depth courses in system-oriented clinical 

72 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



subjects. Also offered are individually tailored courses designed to fulfill the spe- 
cific needs of a physician. Information on current and projected courses is avail- 
able at all times from the Department of Family Medicine or the Program of 
Continuing Education of the Medical School.

The Department of Medicine, or Internal Medicine as it is called in some schools, 
teaches that body of medical knowledge that enables one to diagnose and treat 
the illnesses of adults primarily with medicines rather than with operations. 

The practitioner of internal medicine is usually called an internist, but 
he or she may be referred to by the title physician, in the specialized use of the 
word, which can also be applied to any medical doctor. An internist, used in this 
sense, may be a cardiologist, an endocrinologist, a gastroenterologist, a rheuma- 
tologist or a practitioner in one of the dozen or so specialties of internal medi- 
cine. But the internist always remains the physician (or the diagnostician as 
internists were called in past decades) whose special competence is solving diffi- 
cult diagnostic problems and personally applying, or obtaining from a colleague, 
the best treatment available at the time. 

The term internal medicine, which derives from the German Innere 
Medizin, was first used during the nineteenth century when many American 
physicians travelled to Germany and Austria for training in what were then the 
leading clinics and medical laboratories. According to one medical historian, 
"Within a decade or so after 1880, internal medicine was differentiated from 
ordinary clinical medicine, the simple natural history of disease, by emphasizing 
that it was based on experimental work in physiology and physiochemistry." 
Internists have always required special training to acquire their knowledge and 
skills and have continuously shown a particular interest in the scientific basis ot 
clinical work. 

Educating medical practitioners tor the state and the nation is the prin- 
cipal training responsibility o( the faculty oi the Department of Medicine, but it 
is also our aim to develop in sonic students a desire to make useful discoveries 

COURSE OFFERINGS • 7^ 



through basic or applied research. Fundamental advances in the causes and treat- 
ment of disease have often been made by internists; for example, the work on 
cholesterol metabolism which in 1985 brought the Nobel Prize in Medicine and 
Physiology to two internists, one a gastroenterologist and the other a geneticist. 
In keeping with this traditional devotion to the value of research, the Depart- 
ment of Medicine provides many opportunities for students to participate in 
research and strongly encourages all who may have an interest to experience the 
work of the investigator in one of our laboratories. 

UNDERGRADUATE COURSES 

Second Year 

PDIA 520. History and Physical Examination. Eliciting an accurate story of 
the patient's complaints (the history) and detecting abnormal findings by phys- 
ical examination constitute the fundamental skills of every physician. To acquire 
these abilities, students attend introductory lectures from members of the faculty; 
afterwards, groups of two students meet weekly with instructors in one of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland's teaching hospitals. The students interview and examine 
patients with a wide variety of illnesses and then discuss the findings with their 
teacher who correlates the observations with pathophysiological abnormalities 
being studied in basic science courses. 

Third Year 

MEDC 530. Clinical Clerkship. This is the fundamental course in internal 
medicine for medical students. For 12 weeks, the students work with the medical 
teams caring for inpatients at the department's three primary teaching hospitals: 
the University of Maryland Hospital, the Baltimore Veterans Administration 
Medical Center and Mercy Medical Center. Students join the interns, residents, 
and nurses for work rounds at 8:00 a.m. and participate in the daily conference 
with their attending physician from the faculty at 9:00 a.m. Monday through Fri- 
day. At 1 1:00 a.m. clinical clerks attend a student lecture delivered by members 
of the faculty designed to teach the most important subjects in internal medicine 
during the 12-week course. At noon on Wednesdays and Fridays, students join 
the house officers and faculty at Medical Grand Rounds and the Morbidity and 
Mortality Conference. During the afternoons and evenings, clerks examine 
patients and evaluate laboratory data to develop diagnosis and treatment pro- 
grams with the house officers and faculty. 

Fourth Year 

MEDC 548. Student Internship (Subinternship in Medicine). Each fourth- 
year student takes a subinternship in medicine, pediatrics, surgery or family prac- 
tice. The student internship in internal medicine occupies eight weeks, four of 
which must be spent on the general medical services at the University of Mary- 
land Medical System or the Baltimore Veterans Administration Medical Cen- 
ter. During the other four weeks, students may work at either of these hospitals 

74 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



or in the University of Maryland Cancer Center, the Coronary Care Unit or the 
Medical Intensive Care Unit of the University of Maryland Hospital, Mercy 
Medical Center or at one of the other hospitals affiliated with the University of 
Maryland Medical System. Student interns work as if they were graduate physi- 
cians but under the close supervision of the resident and attending physicians. 
Subinterns are on-call in the hospital with their resident physicians one out of 
four nights. The amount of responsibility delegated to subinterns depends upon 
the extent of each student's knowledge, dedication and maturity. Successful 
completion of a subinternship in medicine prepares students particularly well for 
internships in any subject. 

Laboratory and Clinical Research Electives. The faculty of the Department of 
Medicine strongly encourages all students to join them on a full-time or part-time 
basis to participate in research projects being conducted in the department. This 
experience may be scheduled at most times of the year. Students with an interest 
in investigation should talk with members of the faculty or the chairman about 
the many opportunities for this work available in the Department of Medicine. 

GRADUATE PROGRAM 

House Officer Training. The Department of Medicine appoints each year approx- 
imately 35 leading members from the fourth-year class of the University of Mary- 
land School of Medicine and other medical schools to its internship at the 
University of Maryland Hospital and the Baltimore Veterans Administration 
Medical Center. About 28 of the interns remain to become junior and senior res- 
idents. At the completion of three years of postgraduate training, house officers 
become eligible for certification as diplomates of the American Board of Inter- 
nal Medicine. About seven of the interns leave the program after one year for res- 
idency training in specialties such as anesthesiology, dermatology, neurology, 
ophthalmology and radiology. 

Interns and residents care for all the inpatients on the medical services 
at the University of Maryland's principal teaching hospitals under the guidance 
of the department's faculty. Throughout their training they also follow the med- 
ical progress of a group of patients in the outpatient department. 

CONTINUING MEDICAL EDUCATION 

The department and its specialty divisions sponsor several courses each year to 
inform graduate physicians about the most recent developments in the profes- 
sion. Physicians also are invited to attend the regular clinical and research con- 
ferences held by the specialty divisions and the weekly Medical Grand Rounds 
held on Wednesdays from 12:15 p.m. to 1:15 p.m.

QENERAL INTERNAL MEDICINE AND QERIATRICS 

Division of General Internal Medicine and Geriatrics 

Professor and Head 

Mohamed S. Al-Ibrahim, MB, ChB 

Our concept of the general internist at this institution is that of an individual 
who is: 1 ) skilled in all facets of health care, both acute and chronic, as well as 
the ambulatory and inpatient level; 2 ) an educator of peers, students and the pub- 
lic; 3) interested in the impact of health care delivery and its evaluation; 4) an 
able administrator capable of management decision making and planning; 5) an 
active participant in the affairs of the community. In addition, the Division of 
General Internal Medicine and Geriatrics provides education, clinical training 
and research experience in geriatrics for medical students and graduate trainees 
to the fellowship level. 

The goal of the General Internal Medicine and Geriatrics Program is to 
prepare physicians, beginning with inpatient, ambulatory and elective experi- 
ences during the students' clinical years that continues with an extensive gradu- 
ate medical education program. The division delivers a wide range of primary and 
consultative health care services for ambulatory and hospitalized patients at Uni- 
versity clinical sites that are also used for student and resident medical training. 

RESEARCH INTERESTS 

The research interests within the division are broad and include: biomedical and 
clinical investigation of the aging process and the effects of obesity, exercise, 
nutrition, hypertension, lipid and glucose metabolism on cardiovascular disease 
in the elderly; evaluation of preventive and rehabilitative care strategies; cur- 
riculum development and evaluation in ambulatory education; and institution 
and evaluation of health care practices on elderly patients. 

UNDERGRADUATE COURSES 

Selected ambulatory primary care elective experiences are offered as part of the 
senior ambulatory rotation in internal medicine and there are clinical and 
research electives in gerontology and medical consultation. For further informa- 
tion, consult the medicine section of the electives catalog. These experiences are 
offered on the UMAB campus and at affiliated medical institutions. 

GRADUATE PROGRAM 

The graduate medical education program in internal medicine educates and 
trains physicians in the principles and practices of general internal medicine. Our 
graduates have been successfully evaluated against the most stringent natural 

standards of medical practice and quality of patient care. Our intent is to prepare 

COURS! OFFERINGS • 



clinicians by providing training via a broad internal medicine curriculum. Spe- 
cialized training experiences are encouraged and are presently available in geri- 
atrics, risk assessment, preventive care and rehabilitation medical care as well as 
and health services research. Students and residents are supervised by a team of 
clinician educators, practitioners and scientists in the program. The faculty 
include general internists and geriatricians, psychiatrists, epidemiologists, clini- 
cal pharmacists, primary care nurse clinicians and social workers. 

The General Internal Medicine Program meets the requirement for cer- 
tification by the American Board of Internal Medicine, and provides extensive 
medical background and experiences in education with training experiences in 
clinical practice, research, teaching, management, planning and evaluation of 
health care.

INFECTIOUS DISEASES 

Division of Infectious Diseases 
Professor and Head 
John W. Warren, MD 

UNDERGRADUATE COURSES 

Fourth Year 

INFE 541-01. Infectious Diseases Elective. The discipline of infectious dis- 
eases is uncommon in internal medicine in that it is not restricted to one organ 
system. Indeed the types of patients seen by the Infectious Diseases Consultative 

82 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



Service are patients in virtually all departments of the hospital. These patients 
are often among the most acutely ill patients and/or the most difficult diagnostic 
enigmas within the hospital. These presentations are more than an academic 
challenge; many infectious diseases can be cured and the patient restored to pre- 
vious health. 

The diagnosis of infections and proper management of patients with 
these diseases are taught by exposure of the student to practical, clinical, labora- 
tory and research problems. The student will see consultations under the super- 
vision o( a full-time attending. A clinical infectious disease conference for 
faculty, house staff and students takes place each week. Specialized programs are 
available in AIDS, pediatrics, the Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical 
Services Systems and the University o( Maryland Cancer Center. 

POSTGRADUATE FELLOWSHIPS 

The postgraduate fellowship is a combined program offered by the Divisions of 
Infectious Diseases and Geographic Medicine. The first year is clinically oriented 
and is spent consulting on patients with problems related to infectious diseases. 
This experience is obtained through rotations at the University o( Maryland 
Hospital, the Veterans Administration Medical Center, the Maryland Institute 
for Emergency Medical Services Systems and the University of Maryland Can- 
cer Center. Fellows see consults; supervise residents, interns and medical stu- 
dents; and spend much of their time teaching and providing patient care. The 
second and subsequent years of the program are oriented towards research. 

Research interests in the division include pathogenesis o( bacterial 
infections, research physiology of acute inflammation, infections in cancer 
patients or severely traumatized patients, nosocomial infections and mechanisms 
of action and pharmacokinetics of antibiotics. Application is made through the 
division head.

be accepted. The student is expected to become thoroughly familiar with the 
approach to patients with kidney diseases and acquainted with clinical proce- 
dures. Each student will present at one nephrology conference. The typical rota- 
tion involves the student in seeing consultations with fellows and attending 
nephrologists, rounds on inpatients, Renal Clinic activities and exposure to the 
dialysis program. Students with special interest in particular aspects of kidney 
function or kidney disease may be permitted to pursue those after consultation 
with the division head. 

NEPH 541-03. Nephrology Student Fellowship Elective, Maryland General

POSTGRADUATE FELLOWSHIPS 

Qualified physicians may apply for full-time fellowships in nephrology. Although 
a one-year clinical fellowship may be specially arranged, the standard fellowship 
is for two years of training. The first year is structured to produce broad experi- 
ence in clinical nephrology, its procedures and its literature. Basic experience in 
the research lab is provided. The second year is largely elective, permitting fel- 
lows to pursue their chosen direction with planning and supervision. Additional 
years of experience for those undertaking special projects are available. Fellows 
completing this program are qualified and prepared to be certified in nephrology. 
The renal fellowship provides full clinical responsibility for numerous complex 
problems in renal pathophysiology, in the management of dialysis patients and 
the care of patients undergoing kidney transplantation. Fellows also become pro- 
ficient in renal biopsy techniques, peritoneal and hemodialysis. The laboratory 
offers experience in studies of renal metabolism/function interrelationships and 
immunologic studies of kidney disease. The fellow is given significant responsi- 
bility in teaching third- and fourth-year students and in the supervision of resi- 
dents on the consulting service.

Fourth Year 

MEDC 549*01. Medical Oncology/Hematology Electives. Three different 
electives are available through the divisions of Hematology and Medical Oncol- 
ogy. Students may choose a subinternship on the inpatient service of the Uni- 
versity o{ Maryland Cancer Center. This provides students and postgraduate 
physicians with in-depth studies of the diagnosis, natural history and treatment 
o( human cancers. In particular patients with neoplastic diseases are treated 
according to treatment programs illustrating the opportunities for treatment and 
support, both physically and emotionally, of the patients with cancer. 

Clerkships in oncology provide close interactions with fellows and 
oncology attendings for a one-on-one experience. The wide diversity of internal 
medicine diseases seen during the natural history of many cancers makes this an 
intense course in the treatment of many internal medicine problems common to 
adult patients. Clerkships on the medical oncology consultation service provide 
the interaction with other specialties in the management o( as yet undiagnosed 
patients as well as the early detection, diagnosis and staging of malignancy. 
Clerkships in hematology provide exposure to benign hematologic problems. 
Individuals on all clerkships are expected to attend the large number of confer- 
ences available on a weekly basis that provide didactic information about natural 
history, new treatments and evolutionary changes in the laboratory understand- 
ing of neoplasia.

Jan Cerny, MD, PhD 

Training in microbiology and immunology within the medical school curriculum 
occurs primarily during the sophomore year when all students are required to take 
medical microbiology and immunology. Emphasis is placed on medical aspects of 
microbiology and immunology. In addition, elective courses specifically designed 
for medical students and selected Graduate School courses are available to med- 
ical students in all years. Individual faculty members are available to provide 
instruction and guidance throughout the medical curriculum. 

The department also offers the PhD degree. Although the MS degree 
may be ottered in special instances, priority will be given to PhD aspirants. This 
department encourages students to enroll in the MD/PhP program. 

RESEARCH INTERESTS 

The research programs within the Department o( Microbiology and Immunol- 
pgy are oriented towards the biology o\ infectious diseases and the host defense 
piechanisms. Spec ific projects include studies on latent virus infections, partic- 
ularly the human immunodeficiency virus (1 \\\') and AIDS, and the pathogen- 

>U RSI OFFERING 



esis of vector-borne agents of malaria, lyme disease and rickettsial infections. 
These studies are focused on the molecular characterization of antigens and other 
pathogenic factors, and on the parasite-host interactions at the cellular and 
organismal level. The projects in basic immunology include molecular analysis 
of antibody responses and T cell responses, mechanisms of lymphocyte activa- 
tion, and studies on subversion of immune mechanisms in autoimmunity and 
advanced aging. The programs in basic immunology and infectious diseases inter- 
act in efforts to develop new vaccination strategies. Medical students are encour- 
aged to participate for elective credits in the research programs of their interest. 
The department serves as a World Health Organization Collaborating Center for 
Rickettsial Reference and Research.

Neurology 



Department of Neurology 
Professor and Chairman 
Kenneth P. Johnson, M.D. 



88 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



Neurology is the study of the normal and diseased nervous system that includes 
central, peripheral and neuromuscular systems. Faculty members participate in 
courses in all four years of undergraduate medical education. While only a rela- 
tive few medical students will choose careers in medical or surgical neurology, or 
in the basic neurosciences, all medical graduates must have sufficient under- 
standing of the basic structure and function of the nervous system to perform a 
satisfactory neurological examination, recognize and treat the many common 
neurological disorders and know when to refer the patient to a neurological spe- 
cialist. Of special importance is the ability to distinguish between functional and 
organic neurological symptoms or signs. 

The discipline of neurology has maintained close ties with basic science 
and by its complex but logical nature, has typified the scholarly aspects of medi- 
cine. Recent methodological and scientific advances have created a new and 
therapeutically oriented specialty that is represented in the philosophy and goals 
of this department. 

RESEARCH INTERESTS 

Research activities, at both the basic neuroscience and the clinical levels, play 
an important role in the activity of the department. A broad program in neu- 
roimmunology and biology is under way. The department holds a demyelinating 
diseases clinical center grant from NIH and in the last four years has been one of 
the most active centers in the United States and Europe in the conduct of trials 
of new forms of therapy for multiple sclerosis. Basic science and clinical studies 
in the demyelinating diseases are closely integrated. 

Several department members are active also in the study of cerebrovas- 
cular disease and its consequences. A clinical stroke center funded by NIH has 
also been established. Special emphasis has been placed on the application of 
computer sciences to the diagnosis and treatment of stroke and a strong depart- 
mental program studies language disorders. A very active program in diseases of 
peripheral nerve and muscle has been undertaken as well. Special emphasis has 
been placed on the pathogenesis of Guillain-Barre syndrome and the treatment 
of myasthenia gravis. A highly developed program is focused on epilepsy with 
special interest in cases that fail medical therapy and must be considered for neu- 
rosurgery. Active research at the molecular level is under way into neurologic 
degenerative diseases especially Alzheimer's Disease and Parkinsonism. 

An expanded program in neurorehabilitation has been developed. 
Rehabilitation sites for neurologically damaged patients are at Montebello and 
Kernan Hospitals in Baltimore. Specialized research programs are being devel- 
oped primarily in the rehabilitation of stroke, head injury, spinal cord injury and 
multiple sclerosis patients.

and Kernan Hospital. The neurologic examination o( the patient is emphasized, 
as well as the study and application of a wide variety of specialized neurologic diag- 
nostic techniques. Each student will become proficient in taking a neurologic 
history, performing a neurologic exam, formulating a reasonable diagnostic 
impression or differential diagnosis, a plan of investigation and management for 
several of the more common neurologic problems. (Neurology Faculty) 

NEUR 548. Neurological Research Electives. In all four undergraduate years, 
a limited number of students will have the opportunity to work with individual

addition, fellowships are available for subspecialty neurology training, such as 
EEG, EMG, stroke, neuroimmunology and rehabilitation. For further informa- 
tion contact the department chairperson. 

REHABILITATION MEDICINE 

Division of Rehabilitation Medicine 
Professor and Head 
Kenneth P. Johnson, MD 

The School of Medicine has developed a research and training center in the area 
of neurologic rehabilitation with the full knowledge that current life-saving 
expertise in the fields of trauma (head and spinal cord injury), combined with 
major technological advances in medical and surgical neurology, has yielded and 
will continue to yield the most severely disabled patients. There is no indication 
that the incidence of neurological disability will decrease; more likely it will 
increase. Specialized research programs are under way in the areas of head injury 
recovery, controlled reassessment of rehabilitation techniques and improved 
communication in aphasic patients using computer assisted language. 

The Division of Rehabilitation Medicine is committed to the education 
of medical students, resident physicians, physical therapists and other allied 
health professionals. Expectations for the next decade indicate that the rehabil- 
itation field in this country is not going to wait for residency programs to train 
the physiatrists needed to provide professional direction for neurological reha- 
bilitation programs. Accordingly, neurological rehabilitation probably will 
depend on other neurologists, internists, pediatricians, and neurological and 
orthopedic surgeons to carry the load. These physicians will need not only appro 
priate training in rehabilitation management, but exposure to the frontiers o\ 
fundamental research in neuroscience, particularly in the areas of neuroplastic-

ity and recovery of function. To this end a two-year fellowship program in neu- 
rologic rehabilitation has been established. 



Obstetrics and (gynecology 

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology 

Professor and Chairman 

M. Carlyle Crenshaw, Jr., MD 

The department provides a learning experience that encourages each student, 
regardless of ultimate career choice, to develop professional attitudes, diagnostic 
skills and knowledge relevant to the human female and to her sexual and repro- 
ductive systems. This experience enables each student to assume more effective 
responsibility for the general delivery of health care to the adolescent, adult and 
aging female and to the newborn. 

The student is taught to recognize more accurately those patients who 
require special gynecologic consultation. Health-related social problems such as 
family planning are discussed as well as other aspects of population control, sex- 
ual difficulties, sterilization and induced abortion. 

The educational material is presented so as to familiarize students with 
all sources of knowledge relevant to these subject areas. Students may extend 
their knowledge and skills in a direction and depth appropriate to current and 
ultimate career goals. Students are also encouraged to take electives in basic, 
clinical and social research. 

The service roles focus on the general areas of obstetrical and gyneco- 
logic care. Obstetrics deals with a high-risk pregnancy population and provides 
excellent educational opportunities for both student and resident. Specialty clin- 
ics in endocrinology, complicated pregnancy, cancer, pre- and postoperative 
evaluation and family planning provide specific, specialized areas of instruction 
in addition to serving large numbers of patients. Cancer detection and therapy 
plays a major part in the gynecologic program. 

The department utilizes audiovisual aids to enhance the educational 
experience o( both medical students and residents. The faculty also contributes 
to the postgraduate educational programs at the University of Maryland Medical 
System and throughout the state. 

UNDERGRADUATE MEDICAL PROGRAM 

Third Year 

OBST 530. Clinical Clerkship. Students are assigned to obstetrics and gyne- 
cology for a period of six weeks. As clinical clerks they participate in the original

ized patients. Instruction in prenatal and gynecologic outpatient care is accom- 
plished in the outpatient department. Seminars and departmental conferences 
with the attending staff and house officers are employed for teaching the art of 
correlating observations, diagnosis and therapy. Frequent and close contact with 
faculty is achieved by means of a preceptorial system that assigns a group of two 
or three students to a member of the faculty for the entire clerkship. As an alter- 
native to the clerkship at the University of Maryland Medical System, a similar 
instructional program is offered to a limited number of students by the obstetrics 
and gynecology departments at Mercy Medical Center, Harbor Hospital Center 
and St. Agnes Hospital. (Staff) 

Fourth Year

Special courses for both nonspecialists and ophthalmologists are given at various 
times throughout the year by the Program of Continuing Medical Education. 



Pathology 

Department of Pathology 
Professor and Chairman 
Benjamin F. Trump, MD 

The primary goal of the Department o( Pathology is the better understanding of 
human disease with emphasis on mechanisms of disease and changes occurring 
at the subcellular level and in molecular terms. The student achieves this goal in 
three phases: 1 ) by acquiring the basic principles of pathology and applying those 
principles to the diagnosis and study of health care delivery as expressed in diag- 
nostic areas such as surgical pathology, clinical pathology, cytology, forensic 
pathology and autopsy pathology; 2) by establishing a philosophy of critical eval- 
uation and judgment concerning the problems of health and disease in humans; 
and 3) by developing feelings of personal responsibility and ethics for the prac- 
tice of medicine. 

The department's philosophy is that the study of disease includes both 
structure and function and is carried out from the level of the patient to that of 
the molecule. 

The student is exposed to anatomical and clinical hospital pathology 
services with additional training at Baltimore Veterans Administration Medical 
Center and other local hospitals.

UNDERGRADUATE MEDICAL PROGRAM 

Second Year 

PATH 501. General and Systemic Pathology. The essentials of pathology are 
covered in such a way as to form a good foundation for the student's continuing 
medical education. The course is divided into "general" or pathobiology and "sys- 
temic" pathology. It starts with the study of the basic principles of pathology as 
embodied in the areas of cell injury, inflammation, immunopathology, neoplasia 
and environmental and forensic pathology. These are followed by the study of 
diseases of the various organ systems. Pathophysiology and the study of mecha- 
nisms of disease, as well as morphology, are stressed. Various disciplines are inte- 
grated in this approach and clinical correlative sessions provide opportunities for 
application to clinical situations. The course consists of lectures, small group lab- 
oratories and seminars. The laboratory sessions are in smaller groups under the 
direction of faculty members assigned to each student group. (Drs. Trump, T. 
Jones and R.Jones) 

ELECTIVES 

Supplementing the core program are more than 20 course offerings for freshman, 
sophomore and senior medical students. These opportunities span a wide range o( 
departmental activities from system-oriented courses such as renal, pulmonary, 
neurological or cardiovascular pathology to process-oriented instruction such as 
environmental pathology, carcinogenesis and research seminars. The latter are 
conducted with the aid of a number of guest speakers who are leading authorities 
in their fields. Research and clinical preceptorships are encouraged. 

Other courses are of more general interest and include seminars in clin- 
ical pathology or clinical clerkships in Baltimore area hospitals. Medical students 
also have access to courses in experimental pathology such as histochemistry, tis- 
sue culture or pathological biochemistry. 

Most of the aforementioned courses, conforming with the 4-1-4-1 
arrangement of the freshman year, are offered in January and June while others 
are given during the regular semester as longitudinal elect ives. For course listing, 
time and content description consult the pathology section in the appropriate 
elective catalogs. 

Advanced Accelerated Program in Pathobgy (AAPP) . The AAPP admit- 
ted the first group of students in the fall o( 1975 in an effort to permit early spe- 
cialization and target-oriented education. The track in pathology begins in the 
freshman year. It makes use of all the resources of the Department of Pathology, 
and includes three types of experience: 1 ) exposure to the practice of pathology, 
2) study of one selected field of study and }) exposure to research. Five students 
are admitted during their first year. They are required to fulfill .ill the require- 
ments ot the medical school program; however, the\ are not pledged to sock a 
career in the field of pathology. The training in the trick program should provide 
the student with the knowledge of a one-year residency program. Tune spent in 

COl RSI OFFER I N< 



training within the track program can count towards elective or residency time. 
(Dr. Mergner) 

RESEARCH INTERESTS 

Research efforts in the Department of Pathology focus upon the pathobiologic 
mechanisms of human disease at the cellular, subcellular and molecular levels. 
Current projects involve a broad spectrum of diseases to include cancer, 
immunologic disease, heart disease, shock, infectious disease and aging. 

Cancer research efforts focus upon accurately defining the sequence of 
events within cells following their exposure to confirmed carcinogens, mutagens 
and environmental toxins. This involves the development of varied strategies for 
assaying human risk from environmental pollutants and the development of ani- 
mal and fish models for human disease with environmental etiologies. 

Research efforts in heart disease are directed toward providing a defin- 
itive description of the mechanisms that lead to cell death subsequent to the 
depletion or complete loss of oxygen supply. Identification of parameters whose 
manipulation might result in impeding or halting cell death and development of 
improved methods of therapy for preventing the damaging effects of shock are 
integral components of this research. 

Faculty research projects in infectious diseases focus on the delineation 
o{ the mechanism by which microbes invade and destroy human cells; the iden- 
tification of microbial antigens with the capacity to elicit an autoimmune disease 
in the host; the study of mechanisms o( immunologic injury as related to com- 
plement-mediated lysis; immune complex diseases and autoimmunity; and the 
analysis of the events leading to cell death as a consequence of the normal process 
of aging. 

GRADUATE PROGRAM 

The Department of Pathology offers programs of study leading to the PhD degree 
or the combined MD/PhD degree in medical pathology, the PhD degree in foren- 
sic toxicology and the MS degree in pathology. Areas o( concentration offered 
in the MS degree program are medical pathology (including anatomic pathology 
and clinical chemistry) and forensic toxicology. The master's and doctoral pro- 
grams train individuals for research and service in pathology and related fields. 
Research programs use modern techniques, including x-ray microanalysis, quan- 
titative microscopy, flow cytometry with cell-sorting capability, spectrofluorom- 
etry and calcium imaging. 

The program leading to the PhD in medical pathology includes com- 
prehensive training in experimental pathology with emphasis on the patho- 
genesis of cell injury and carcinogenesis; environmental pathology; and 
immunology. Students working toward combined MD/PhD degrees in medical 
pathology are enrolled simultaneously in the School of Medicine and the Grad- 
uate School in specially tailored programs designed to meet their specific goals 

96 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



and research interests as physician-scientists. The PhD program in forensic tox- 
icology (legal medicine) includes comprehensive training in toxicology, gross 
anatomic pathology related to toxicology, instrumental analysis, medicinal 
chemistry and pharmacology. 

The program leading to an MS degree in pathology is highly individu- 
alized. Concentrations in medical pathology and forensic toxicology are 
designed for students seeking training in laboratory work and research methods. 
Training in anatomic pathology, one of three such programs in the United 
States, prepares students for certification as a pathologist's assistant. Training in 
clinical chemistry prepares individuals for certification in clinical chemistry and 
for advanced work in this discipline. 

For details of admission requirements and course offerings, see the 
pathology section in the Graduate School catalog.

Psychiatry 

Department o( Psychiatry 
Professor and Chairman 
John A. Talbott, MD 

The goal of undergraduate psychiatric education is to acquire an understanding 
of and an appreciation for the application of behavioral and psychiatric princi- 
ples in patient care and health maintenance through an exposure to a progres- 
sive sequence of intellectual stimulations, clinical experiences and appropriate 
professional socialization. More specifically, the curriculum aims to assist the stu- 
dent in: 1) acquiring a foundation of knowledge regarding the psychological, 
sociological and humanistic aspects of the practice of medicine; 2) mastering 
basic interpersonal and psychiatric skills relevant to the management of patients 
with medical and/or emotional illness; }) emulating attitudes and values thai 
enhance the professional roles and practices ol a physician. 

The curriculum is divided into a core program which consists of require J 
courses offered during the first three years of medical education, and an electives 
program which provides a variety of courses (clinical, didactic and research) tor 
the students who are interested in furthering their knowledge and experience in 
some aspect of the theory and practice oi psy< hiatrv and its related fields. These 

COURSE OFFERINGS • 101 



elective courses are offered during the January and June minimesters of the pre- 
clinical years and in the senior year. The four-year Combined Accelerated Pro- 
gram in Psychiatry (CAPP) is offered as an advanced elective track to selected 
students with a special interest in the behavioral sciences. 

UNDERGRADUATE MEDICAL PROGRAM 

First Year 

PSYCH 510. Behavioral and Social Sciences. (72 hours). This interdisciplinary 
course provides a context for the integration of diverse behavioral science con- 
tributions that are relevant to the understanding o( human behavior. Emphasis 
is on the emergence of a broader concept of life sciences that constitutes medi- 
cine, one that views the human organism holistically as a dynamic biological sys- 
tem whose inherent aspects of structure, organization, ontogeny and functioning 
are determined or influenced by developmental, intrapsychic, interpersonal and 
sociocultural factors. The course runs through both semesters for a total of 72 
hours; 42 hours in the fall semester and 30 hours in the spring semester. 

The purpose of the course is to assist students in: 1 ) acquiring a founda- 
tion of knowledge in psychological, sociological and humanistic aspects of the 
practice of medicine based on the study of the behavioral and social sciences and 
clinical psychiatry; 2) learning about the behavioral aspects of human develop- 
ment that change throughout the life cycle; 3) understanding physician-patient 
interaction in various clinical situations including death and dying and learning 
about basic psychophysiology of emotions and human interaction. 

The course is presented in the form of lectures-presentations and small 
group sessions. Small group sessions are scheduled on a weekly basis throughout 
both semesters. Their purpose is to provide students with the opportunity to 
apply the concepts learned in class to medical practice situations. 

First Semester: This section provides basic introductory concepts in the field of 
behavioral and social sciences, and is designed primarily to meet the needs of 
those students whose premedical curriculum did not allow sufficient exposure to 
these sciences. The central theme is man as an individual viewed from a devel- 
opmental, intrapersonal, interpersonal and humanistic viewpoint, and his pas- 
sage through the vicissitudes o( the family life cycle. These basic dimensions of 
behavior are presented in the following course units: 1 ) human growth and devel- 
opment and 2) psychological, sociological and cultural aspects of health, illness 
and treatment. 

Second Semester: This section views man in his transactions with the environ- 
ment and in the context o( larger systems. Its major focus is on the psychologi- 
cal, interpersonal and sociocultural aspects of illness and health care. Course 
units include: 1) physician-patient interaction and 2) issues of dying, death and 
grief. In addition, the second semester contains a unit on "brain and behavior." 



102 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 






Second Year 

The goal of sophomore psychiatry is to provide students with basic psychiatric 
interviewing skills and with a foundation of clinical knowledge in the area of psy- 
chopathology and psychiatric diagnosis as a preparation for their junior clerkship 
in psychiatry. This sequence is organized around two courses as follows: 

Psychiatric Interviewing/History Taking. This course is part o( the Introduc- 
tion to Clinical Practice (ICP) which is devoted to specialty physical diagnosis 
and examination (psychiatry, pediatrics and neurology). 

The psychiatric course is devoted to psychiatric interviewing, history 
taking, and mental status examination. Rotation is two hours a week for six weeks 
(12 hours), which is offered during the fall semester for 12 weeks (two rotations) 
on Friday afternoon and again in the spring semester for another 12 weeks (two 
rotations) on Friday afternoons. 

The course uses a small group format, in which groups of five students 
meet with an instructor for six two-hour sessions. In the first session the instruc- 
tor reviews the general principles and goals of psychiatric interviewing and men- 
tal status examination, and interviews a volunteer psychiatric patient from the 
inpatient service in the small group. Each week thereafter each student inter- 
views another patient before his small group. Following the interview, the group 
discusses the interviewing technique and describes the psychopathology elicited 
by history and mental status. Each week, as an assignment, the students write up 
either a comprehensive mental status examination of the interview they witness 
or a complete psychiatric history with mental status included. The write-ups are 
corrected by the instructors and returned to the students as an important source 
of feedback in improvement. 

There are about 30 students per six-week rotation assigned to six groups. 

PSYCH 520. Psychopathology (60 hours). This course is designed to provide 
students with the basic concepts of clinical psychiatry including psychopathol- 
ogy and psychiatric treatment modalities. It is scheduled in a three-week block 
at the beginning of the spring semester concurrently with the Epidemiology and 
Preventive Medicine and Ethics courses. 

The course format is based on brief lectures, audiovisual demonstrat ions 
(videotapes, films) and small group sessions. At the beginning of the course each 
student is given an instruction handbook, handouts, reprints, outlines and a list 
o\ videotapes to be presented. 

CLINICAL YEARS 

PSYCH 530. Junior Psychiatry Clerkship. (6 weeks) The clinical clerkship in 
psychiatry is the main clinical psychiatric experience oi a I fniversityoi Maryland 
medical school graduate. It is usually taken in the third year and is a six-week 

intensive experience combining inpatient and outpatient work in which the stu- 
dent is exposed to a variety o( psychopathologies as well as .i \ ariety oi treatment 

COURSI OFFERINGS • 103 



modalities. Under the preceptorship of a psychiatry resident and a ward attend- 
ing, the student is assigned his own patients and families to work with. This 
involvement with and responsibility for patient and family provide an ideal set- 
ting in which the student, under supervision, can apply the psychosocial con- 
cepts he learned in his first year of behavioral sciences, with the concepts of 
psychopathology he learns in his second year and the clinical skills of psychiatric 
interviewing, history taking and mental status examination. Usually the student 
becomes an integral part of the ward milieu and treatment team. 

The clerkship involves student assignments to the following training 
sites: Institute of Psychiatry and Human Behavior (IPHB), Walter P. Carter 
Center, Spring Grove Hospital and Baltimore Veterans Administration Medical 
Center. 

Students are assigned to both inpatient adult wards (two students per 
ward) and outpatient clinics. Night calls are required for all students. In all affil- 
iated training facilities, students are assigned to wards or clinics under the super- 
vision of residents and attending/clinical faculty. 

All students are required to attend the following didactic courses and 
conferences, which are offered on each Tuesday of the six-week rotation: 

Liaison/Consultation Psychiatry (6 hours) 
Clinical Case Conference (9 hours) 
Alcoholism and Drug Abuse (6 hours) 
Psychopharmacology & Patient Management (6 hours) 
Basic Psychiatry Review (6 hours) 
Child/Adolescent Psychiatry (3 hour) 
Consultation/Liaison (3 hours) 

Students assigned to the inpatient wards of the IPHB and those of the 
affiliated hospitals are required to attend ongoing clinical case conferences, ward 
meetings, staff meetings, and other clinical activities. 

ELECTIVES 

The Department of Psychiatry offers elective courses in all four years of the med- 
ical curriculum. Elective courses scheduled in the Year I and Year II minimesters

courses offered during the clinical years include: inpatient psychiatry, commu- 
nity psychiatry, emergency psychiatry, forensic psychiatry, child psychiatry, geri- 
atric psychiatry, substance abuse and consultation/liaison psychiatry. 

Combined Accelerated Program in Psychiatry: CAPP Program. This elective 
track has become nationally visible for its success in engaging students in psy- 
chiatry through an advanced four-year curriculum that begins in the freshman 
year. In addition to participating in the psychiatry program, students are required 
to fulfill all of the requirements of a standard four-year medical curriculum. The

UROLOQY 

Division of Urological Surgery 
Professor and Head 
Stephen C. Jacobs, MD 

UNDERGRADUATE MEDICAL PROGRAM 

Third Year 

The curriculum is designed to introduce urologic principles as they relate to 
preservation of health through maximum renal function, normal urine storage 
and transport, an acceptable voiding pattern, treatment and prevention of uri- 
nary infection, identification and management of neoplasm in the urinary tract 
and male reproductive system and management of urolithiasis. Instruction is also 
given on disorders of the male reproductive tract including neoplasms, infertil- 
ity and disturbance in sexual function. 

During the basic surgical clerkship, students can elect a specialty rota- 
tion on the urologic service at either the University of Maryland Hospital or Har- 
bor Hospital Center. Each student is assigned patients to evaluate, follow and 
present to members of the faculty. Daily rounds and conferences are held. The 
students observe and participate in diagnostic and operative procedures and 
attend the outpatient clinic. 

Fourth Year 

Senior students may participate in four-week subinternships in urology at the 
University of Maryland Medical System, Baltimore Veterans Administration 
Medical Center or at Sinai Hospital. 

GRADUATE STUDIES 

The residency program consists of four years of urologic training following two 
prerequisite years in general surgery. The third-year assistant residents spend six 
months at both the University of Maryland and Baltimore Veterans Adminis- 
tration Medical Centers. The fourth-year assistant residents divide this second 
year of urologic training between Johns Hopkins Hospital (pediatric urology) 
and the research laboratory. The fifth-year residents spend six months at Sinai 
Hospital and six months at University Hospital. The final chief resident year is 
divided between the University o( Maryland Hospital and Baltimore Veterans 
Administration Medical Center.

INTIMATE HUMAN BEHAVIOR 

S. Michael Plaut, PhD, Coursemaster 

HCPR 512. Intimate Human Behavior (IHB) - Sexuality and intimacy are 
important and sensitive areas of our lives that for a variety of reasons often 
present communication difficulties. When questions or concerns arise, a physi- 
cian or other health care provider is typically the first person from whom help 
and counsel are sought. A health care provider's ability to respond to these 
needs depends heavily on that individual's own level of comfort with these 
issues. The IHB course provides students with the opportunity to examine and 
assess their attitudes, feelings and beliefs about various dimensions of intimacy 
and sexuality, and to become familiar with current knowledge about human 
sexuality and treatment of sexual problems. 

Teaching faculty include 12 lecturers and 30 small group facilitators represent- 
ing various helping professions. The freshman course begins in November with 
a 2-1/2 day workshop spent viewing audiovisual materials - many of a sexually 
explicit nature - with small group discussion o( their reactions to these films 
and related issues. Discussion is facilitated by experienced faculty and includes 
such topics as verbal and nonverbal communication, heterosexual and homo- 
sexual relationships, masturbation, sexuality in the elderly and the disabled. 

The second part of the course, given during the Spring semester, includes a 
series o{ 12 weekly lectures. These are designed to provide students with the 
knowledge and skills needed to provide appropriate intervention. Topics 
include: anatomy and physiology of sexual function, assessment and treatment 
of sexual disorders, sexual counseling for patients with acute and chronic ill- 
nesses, pharmacologic effects on sexual function, sexual abuse oi children and 
adolescents, sexuality throughout the life cycle and sexual issues faced by the 
health professional. 

Grading 

A letter grade is assigned based on: (1) required attendance at all November 
workshop sessions,* (2) examination to include both multiple choice and 
essay components at the end of the Spring semester, O) submission of an 
Honors paper, if eligible, by earning an "A" in the course. 

A limited number of Students who wish to participate in the work 
shop portion of the course with their partners may be offered the 
opportunity to do the workshop portion during a weekend in January 
r. it her than in November. Partners are assigned to separate groups 
and a nominal tee is charged tor their participation. 



GENETICS 

Tina M. Cowan, PhD, Course-master 

MANA 514. The first-year course provides an introduction to the application 
of basic genetic principles to the study of human health and disease. Topics 
covered include Mendelian inheritance, cytogenetics, population genetics, 
biochemical genetics, molecular genetics and clinical genetics. The impor- 
tance of human genetics to the practice of medicine is stressed by the inclu- 
sion of clinical correlation sessions where students have the opportunity to 
hear patients and their families discuss the practical and emotional impact of 
genetic disease. 

The course is taught by a combination of lectures, small groups and clinical 
correlate sessions. Problem sets for each small group session are distributed at 
the beginning oi the semester. The small group sessions are designed to rein- 
force the information discussed in lecture, stressing problem-solving skills. 

Grading 

A midterm and a final examination are given. Both exams are comprised of a 
combination of multiple choice, short answer and problem-solving questions. 
The midterm constitutes one-third and the final constitutes two-thirds of the 
total grade. 



INTRODUCTION TO CLINICAL PRACTICE (ICP) 

David Stewart, MD, MPH, Coursemaster 

HCPR 511. This program of instruction has as its objective training in the art 
as well as the science o( medicine. This includes the practical skills of commu- 
nication and the professional attitudes essential to the effective and humani- 
tarian practice of medicine. Every effort is made to correlate basic science and 
clinical material. 

Introduction to Interviewing and Historv^Taking 

"...the interview, in my view, is the most powerful, sensitive and versatile instru- 
ment available to the physician. The interview serves many functions. Through it a 
relationship is initiated, the conditions and requirements for communication are 
established, roles and obligations are defined, the information necessary to delineate 



disease and to characterize the patient and his life circumstances is collected, data 
processed, the patient and his family are prepared for decisions and judgments and 
instructed in care, and a human compact between patient and physician is achieved. " 

George Engel, M. D. 

Introduction to Interviewing and History-Taking is given during the freshman 
year. It is an eight-week course which consists of lecture demonstrations dur- 
ing the first two weeks, followed by small group meetings in the remaining 
weeks. It is given in the second semester. The students meet once a week for 
four hours and are introduced to techniques in communication, listening, 
observation and interviewing. At the end of this course students are expected 
to feel more comfortable in interviewing a patient and taking a complete med- 
ical history. 



Objectives 



To learn the rudiments o( an appropriate medical interview, focusing 
on inquiry into the medical symptoms of the patient's present illness. 
The psychosocial factors of the patient's life related to his health 
have the same importance as the medical factors and must be elicited 
with tact and appropriate technique. 

To develop an appropriate physician-patient relationship by first 
focusing on the medical symptoms since these are the areas o( com- 
plaint with which the patient introduces himself to the doctor. Thus 
techniques and appropriate logical history-taking will allow the doc- 
tor to penetrate the psychosocial area, obtain the information that he 
needs for a comprehensive diagnosis and elicit the patient's coopera- 
tion in his or her treatment. 

To understand how personal attitudes and values of both the physi- 
cian and patient influence both the relationship that develops 
between them and the entire process of the physical and personality 
diagnosis and prescription and the therapy and rehabilitation. 

To recognize the effect of verbal and nonverbal communication and 
to use these to influence the physician-patient relationship. 

To be able to appreciate how an individual's values and ethics play a 

role in medical practice. 



Organization of the Course 

The class is divided into two groups and these again into smaller groups with 
one faculty instructor and up to ten students per group. The course opens with 
instruction in communication, listening, observation and non-verbal behav- 
ior, followed by instruction in how to meet the patient and start an interview. 
In the small groups these techniques will be practiced and there will be discus- 
sion of what can be learned from the information collected. 

Topics to be covered include: how to elicit the chief complaint and the pres- 
ent illness, previous medical and surgical history, the patient's psychosocial 
history and the review of organ systems. Wherever possible, patient symptoms 
will be related to anatomic and pathophysiologic considerations. Audio-visual 
aids such as video taping will be utilized to teach proper interview technique. 

Grading 

Each student will receive a pass/fail grade for the freshman ICP course. This 
grade will be assigned by each appropriate instructor on the basis oi student 
attendance, performance in medical interviewing and a written examination. 

Instructors may use examinations, take-home problem-solving tasks, observa- 
tions o{ student performance, attendance and any other appropriate tech- 
niques required to obtain data for a final semester grade. Attendance is 
mentioned because some ICP components are of short duration and if a stu- 
dent is not present for an adequate proportion of the course, he/she cannot be 
given a passing grade.

PROQRAM OF ONCOLOQY 

Director 

Joseph Aisner, MD 

The University of Maryland Cancer Center was established by the Division of 
Cancer Treatment of the National Cancer Institute in 1965 as the Baltimore 
Cancer Research Center at the Wyman Park U.S. Public Health Service Hospi- 
tal. In 1974 the center moved to the University of Maryland at Baltimore and 
remained an intramural NCI program under contractual arrangement between 
the NCI and the University of Maryland at Baltimore until 1982, when it became 
the University of Maryland Cancer Center. The clinical effort of the center was 
established as a separate clinical entity within the University of Maryland Med- 
ical System. Formal academic status was granted for the Cancer Center in the 
School of Medicine as the "Program of Oncology," and the Cancer Center fac- 
ulty have academic appointments in various clinical and basic science depart- 
ments of the School of Medicine. 

Activities of the Program of Oncology include basic and clinical cancer 
research; student and house officer teaching and a strong focus on aggressive 
treatment and intense patient care in the 53-bed inpatient and outpatient ser- 
vices of the cancer center. In addition to full-time attending services on medical 
oncology and hematology, Program o( Oncology faculty members provide a 
uniquely supportive program involving a multimodality approach to the treat- 
ment of patients with primary/secondary malignancy involving the central ner- 
vous system and lungs as well as patients on the gynecological and surgical 
services of oncology, genitourinary, otolaryngology and neuro-oncology. 

The University of Maryland Cancer Center is a strong participant in new 
drug development and performs research on new anticancer drugs. Virtually every 
important drug in use in oncology today has been tested in this program, and the 
center has contracts in both the public and private sectors with a commitment to 
clinical and laboratory research. Pilot studies and Phases I, II and III Trials are per- 
formed, which run the gamut from testing efficacy and potential applicability of a 
given treatment program and establishing dose and toxicity limitations of new 
drugs, to comparing treatment programs for superiority of treatment, toxicity and 
outcome. These studies tend to be definitive treatment programs that have major 
impact on the practice of oncology nationwide. The faculty has a strong commit- 
ment to interinstitutional cooperative scientific trials and cancer research. 



PROGRAMS • lis 



The cancer center's Laboratory of Immunology Research generated 
safety and efficacy data that played a key part in obtaining FDA approval for clin- 
ical use of genetically engineered recombinant alpha interferon. Since 1982 the 
cancer center has played an important role in studies of acquired immunodefi- 
ciency syndrome and related disorders. 

Students and residents participate in weekly grand rounds and confer- 
ences, and students are encouraged to become involved in research. 

MEDICAL AND RESEARCH TECHNOLOGY 

Department of Medical and Research Technology 
Professor and Chairman 
Denise M. Harmening, PhD 

The Department of Medical and Research Technology currently offers a major 
in clinical laboratory sciences (medical technology). Two additional majors are 
being investigated for future implementation; a cytogenetic technology major 
and a biomedical science/biotechnology major. University of Maryland at Balti- 
more's clinical laboratory sciences major combines the advantages of a major 
research university with the benefits of small classes and a low faculty-to-student 
ratio. As a component of this large academic health center, the Department of 
Medical and Research Technology affords students unusual opportunities to par- 
ticipate in a stimulating educational environment while gaining practical expe- 
rience in clinical laboratory medicine. 

Clinical laboratory sciences provides information crucial to the diag- 
nosis and prevention of diseases, the management of patient therapy and the 
maintenance of health. Clinical laboratory scientists are involved in performing 
laboratory procedures ranging from identification of a microorganism, to pro- 
viding blood for emergency transfusion. 

Students complete a two-year preprofessional curriculum at the region- 
ally accredited college or university of their choice. Those attending two-year 
institutions may transfer directly to the Department of Medical and Research 
Technology at the University of Maryland at Baltimore. Most students complete 
the professional curriculum in two years; however, a three-year part-time option 
is available for non-traditional students. 

The clinical laboratory sciences concentration of study fulfills require- 
ments set forth by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sci- 
ences and is accredited by the Committee on Allied Health Education and 
Accreditation on behalf of the American Medical Association.

CLINICAL AFFILIATIONS 

During the final component of the program, students complete clinical practice 
courses in five specialty areas. Placement in clinical sites is guaranteed upon 
admission. 

The department affiliates with 28 clinical facilities in the Baltimore- 
Washington area. The clinical facilities include hospital, community and mili- 
tary laboratories of various sizes, as well as independent laboratories. The number 
and variety of the clinical sites are assets that set UMAB's clinical laboratory sci- 
ences major apart from the rest and allow our students to experience several dif- 
ferent work environments.

University Policy Statements 



FACULTY, STUDENT AND INSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS AND 
RESPONSIBILITIES FOR ACADEMIC INTEGRITY 

Preamble 

The academic enterprise is characterized by reasoned discussion between student 
and teacher, a mutual respect for the learning and teaching process, and intel- 
lectual honesty in the pursuit of new knowledge. By tradition, students and 
teachers have certain rights and responsibilities which they bring to the acade- 
mic community. While the following statements do not imply a contract 
between the teacher or the institutions and the student, they are nevertheless 
conventions which should be central to the learning and teaching process. 

Faculty Rights and Responsibilities 

1 . Faculty members shall share with students and administrators the responsi- 
bility for academic integrity. 

2. Faculty members shall enjoy freedom in the classroom to discuss all subject 
matter reasonably related to the course. In turn they have the responsibility 
to encourage free and honest inquiry and expression on the part of students. 

3. Faculty members, consistent with the principles o{ academic freedom, have 
the responsibility to present courses that are consistent with their descrip- 
tions in the catalog of the institution. In addition, faculty members have the 
obligation to make students aware of the expectations in the course, the 
evaluation procedures, and the grading policy. 

4. Faculty members are obligated to evaluate students fairly, equitably and in a 
manner appropriate to the course and its objectives. Grades shall be assigned 
without prejudice or bias. 

5. Faculty members shall make all reasonable efforts to prevent the occurrence 
oi academic dishonesty through appropriate design and administration of 
assignments and examination, careful safeguarding of course materials and 
examinations, and regular reassessment of evaluating procedures. 

6. When instances of academic dishonesty are suspected, faculty members shall 
have the responsibility to see that appropriate action is taken in accordance 
with institutional regulations.

Student Rights and Responsibilities 

1 . Students share with faculty members and the administrators the responsi- 
bility for academic integrity. 

2. Students have the right of free and honest inquiry and expression in their 
courses. In addition, students have the right to know the requirements of their 
courses and to know the manner in which they will be evaluated and graded. 

3. Students have the obligation to complete the requirements of their courses 
in the time and manner prescribed and to submit their work for evaluation. 

4. Students have the right to be evaluated fairly, equitably, and in a timely 
manner appropriate to the course and its objectives. 

5. Students shall not submit as their own work any work which has been pre- 
pared by others. Outside assistance in the preparation of this work, such as 
librarian assistance, tutorial assistance, typing assistance or such special 
assistance as may be specified or approved by the appropriate faculty mem- 
ber, is allowed. 

6. Students shall make all reasonable efforts to prevent the occurrence of aca-

HUMAN RELATIONS CODE SUMMARY 

UMAB has a Human Relations Code for use by the entire campus community. 
The code represents UMAB's commitment to human relations issues. The spe- 
cific purposes of the code include: 

1. Prevention or elimination o{ unlawful discrimination on the basis oi race, 
color, creed, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, age, ancestry or national 
origin, physical or mental handicap, or exercise of rights secured by the First 
Amendment of the U.S. Constitution; and 

2 . Establishing a timely, effective grievance procedure as an alternative to more 
lengthy formal processes for resolution of human relations issues. 

A Human Relations Committee was created to oversee the code. It is comprised 
of campus faculty, administrators and students and is advisory to the president oi 
the campus. The committee may institute educational programs and provide an 
open forum on human relations issues. In addition, the committee is charged 
with maintaining a mediation, investigation and hearing process for specific 
complaints o( discrimination brought by students, faculty or staff. The code 
describes the particulars of the hearing process. It is the intent of the code to pro- 
vide a grievance procedure for an individual on campus who wants a cross-sec- 
tion of the campus community to investigate and mediate a problem without 
having to resort to complaints to external agencies such as the Maryland Com- 
mission on Human Relations, complaints under personnel rules or lawsuits. 

Copies of the Human Relations Code are available in the dean's office, the student 
affairs and USG A offices in the Baltimore Student Union, and the human resources 
management and affirmative action offices in the administration building.
